Using Instructional Logs to Study Teachers' Adaptation to Curricular Reform
Stickles, Paula R.
School Science and Mathematics, v111 n2 p39-46 Feb 2011
In this study, the characteristics of teachers that motivate their implementation of reform curriculum, and the factors that influence the teachers' success in implementing the curriculum are investigated. In particular, teachers' internal struggles, frustrations, collegiality, and classroom successes during the implementation of the reform curriculum are considered. From data gathered from elementary school teachers through electronic instructional logs, a classification emerges that suggests that teachers fall into three broad categories based on their characteristics. Implications and future research directions are suggested. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
