An Exploratory Study of Practicing Teachers' Use of Study Guides in Content Area Classrooms.
Peterman, Carol L.; And Others
This exploratory study examines how practicing teachers perceive the function and use of study guides in their content area classrooms. Subjects, 21 students in a graduate content area reading course and 14 cooperating teachers in field experience settings for students enrolled in an equivalent undergraduate course, completed a forced-choice and open-ended questionnaire. The subjects represented teachers from a broad range of content areas, grade levels, and classroom experience. Results seemed to indicate that teachers are not only concerned that students learn from content material but that teachers also recognize the importance of developing students' higher level thinking skills. Results also indicated that while the majority of teachers used study guides as a way of guiding their students' reading, the less experienced teachers were just as convinced that their purpose was to help students study for tests.
