Teacher Agreement with Research-Based Effective Teaching Behaviors.
Marchant, Gregory J.; Bowers, Norman D.
Teacher attitudes toward research-based effective teaching behaviors were inventoried to explore differences. Scores from the Teaching Behaviors Questionnaire (TBQ) for 300 teachers were analyzed for variables related to educational settings and teacher characteristics. Analysis of variance and selected post hoc procedures were used to identify differences. Elementary teachers, specifically first-grade teachers, were more supportive of the research-based behaviors than were high-school teachers. Support for the research-based effective teaching behaviors decreased with years of teaching experience in a linear trend. Recommendations included increased exposure to research-based effective teaching behaviors through preservice and inservice training. References are included. (Author/JD)
