Disciplinary Differences in Classroom Teaching Behaviors.
Murray, Harry G.; Renaud, Robert D.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n64 p31-39 Win 1995
Observation of 401 college teachers indicates that teachers of different academic disciplines (arts/humanities, social sciences, natural sciences/mathematics) differ in the frequency of specific classroom teaching behaviors, but that what makes an effective teacher, in the perception of students, is consistent regardless of discipline. Arts/humanities teachers showed a wider range of behaviors that contribute positively to student ratings. (MSE)
