Teacher Decision Making Regarding Content Structure: A Study of Novice and Experienced Teachers.
Klimczak, Aimee K.; And Others
This study examined how content consideration influenced the instructional strategy decisions reported by novice and experienced teachers. A total of 152 preservice and 153 in-service teachers completed an instrument dealing with well-structured and ill-structured content. The results indicated that both novice and experienced teachers would vary their instructional strategies based on content structure. Their reported variations were similar and consistent with the literature regarding instruction for well-structured and ill-structured content; results raise questions about the tacit knowledge preservice teachers have about instruction, and provide implications for teacher evaluation. Five tables present novice and experienced teacher demographics; instructional functions and related items; reported likelihood of using instructional functions with well- and ill-structured content; and means, standard deviations, and mean differences of the reported likelihood to use various strategies when teaching different types of content.
