Interactive Cognitions of Student-Teachers. An Intervention Study.
In this study the effects of a particular type of teacher training material on the cognitions and behaviors of prospective teachers are investigated. The study is based on the assumption that theoretical knowledge that has emerged from research and theory development in education is useful for prospective teachers. The study is confined to that part of educational theory that directly pertains to the teaching-learning process. In chapters 2 to 4, the emphasis is on the theoretical framework of the study, while in chapters 5-7 the empirical investigation is reported. Chapter 8 is devoted to a discussion of some implications and limitations of the study. The main function of the theoretical chapters of the study is to present a line of reasoning embedded in and documented by relevant literature. In the final chapter, the main results of the study are briefly evaluated. A list of 287 references is included. (JD)
