Evaluation of a Pre-service Training Programme Based on Direct Instruction.
Veenman, Simon; And Others
A quasi-experimental, treatment-control group investigation was designed to test the effects of a preservice training course on effective instruction. Research findings from teacher effects research and cognitive strategy instruction were translated into two direct instructional models: one model for explicit or well-structured skills and one model for implicit skills or higher-level thinking strategies. Following a course on effective instruction from their teacher educators, student teachers implemented standardized lessons to apply selected research-derived teaching behaviors and to increase pupil engagement rates. Based on trained observers' pre- and post-training classroom observations, a significant treatment effect was found for student teachers' teaching behaviors regarding effective instruction and for pupil engagement rates. Ratings from supervising teachers also showed that the student teachers who participated in the course on effective instruction used the recommended instructional skills after completion of the course significantly better than prior to the course.
