Capturing and Assessing Evidence of Student Teacher Inquiry: A Case Study
Rich, Peter; Hannafin, Michael
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v24 n6 p1426-1440 Aug 2008
In this paper, we present five principles underlying teacher inquiry and report a case study during which student teachers in a US teacher education programme used evidence-based decision support, an inquiry method designed to help teachers analyse and adapt their own teaching through the use of a video analysis tool. This case study examined interplay among tools designed to guide teaching practice, student teachers' own self-guided inquiry, and feedback from cooperating teachers as they made instructional decisions. Preservice teachers initially accepted the guidance provided by teaching analysis tools, but abandoned the tools in favour of informal self-assessments and feedback from cooperating teachers when they assumed teaching responsibilities in their own classrooms. We discuss the role of external support and video evidence in guiding preservice teacher inquiry. (Contains 2 figures and 3 tables.)
