An Examination of Teachers' Perceptions and Practice when Teaching Large and Reduced-Size Classes: Do Teachers Really Teach Them in the Same Way?
Harfitt, Gary James
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v28 n1 p132-140 Jan 2012
Class size research suggests that teachers do not vary their teaching strategies when moving from large to smaller classes. This study draws on interviews and classroom observations of three experienced English language teachers working with large and reduced-size classes in Hong Kong secondary schools. Findings from the study point to subtle differences between teachers' perceptions and their subsequent classroom practice. Implications for professional practice and development are presented. (Contains 3 tables.)
