The school day and content commitments by Margret Buchmann( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judgments on content emphasis reflect on the commitments that teachers have to course content, their attitudes toward teaching certain areas of the curriculum, and teacher's assessment of their own competence in teaching these areas. Three questions were considered: (1) What relationship, if any, is there between an internal factor and the actual choices teachers make with regard to time and content?; (2) What is the content profile for the whole day, given certain response levels on internal factors?; And (3) If time allocations in the school day affect each other, are there consistent trade-off patterns between content areas? Six elementary classrooms were observed and questionnaires administered to the teachers. The findings show clear and interesting patterns of association among (subject matter specific) variables such as attitude and competence and time allocations in the school day. (Authors/JD)
Student responses to seatwork : implications for the study of students' cognitive processing by Linda M Anderson( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In eight Title I classrooms 32 first grade students were observed as they completed reading and writing assignments without continuous teacher supervision. Observations focused on the students' immediate responses, such as attention, performance on the assignment, and reported understanding of the task. Two working hypotheses are presented about the nature of the students' cognitive processing while doing these unsupervised assignments. (1) Many students attend more closely to content coverage than to content mastery, perhaps because of teachers' emphasis on procedural directions and lack of emphasis on content-related purposes of the assignments. (2) Emphasis on content coverage in combination with difficult assignments may create a condition in which low achievers develop strategies to complete work without developing strategies that help them make sense of their work. Further data analysis is being conducted to test these two hypotheses. (Author/DB)
Recent research on teaching by Jere E Brophy( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reviews highlights of research on teaching conducted in the 1970s, discusses current trends, and considers accomplishments likely to be forthcoming in the 1980s. The latter include better attention to context in collecting classroom data and qualifying its probable generalizability, more and better measurement of progress toward affective outcomes of instruction (in addition to continued attention to cognitive outcomes), development of explanations for process-process and process-outcome linkages presently recognized but not fully understood, and better integration of research on teaching with research on learning.

The effects of teaching styles on motor performance, self-concept, and social skill development by Michael Goldberger( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of three teaching styles in Mosston's Spectrum of Teaching Styles were examined in terms of the motor skill acquisition and social skill development of 96 randomly selected fifth grade students, who were taught a hockey accuracy task. Performance data were collected prior to, midway through, and following training and were analyzed: (1) within treatment groups to determine if learning was evident; and (2) across treatment groups to examine the relative effectiveness of the three styles. Social skill patterns were obtained by observing learner-to-learner verbal interactions in which dyads of learners were asked to "help" each other learn the task. All three groups learned the task comparably well. It can be concluded that the three styles are all effective in facilitating learning on the type of algorithmic psychomotor task studied. Style c, in which learners work in dyads, one performing the task while being provided with feedback by the other, was found not only to produce comparable task learning, but also to enhance significantly social skill development.

The high-school curriculum : it does make a difference by William H Schmidt( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question examined in this paper is whether variability in the quantity of schooling students receive in different curricular areas is a contributor to observed differences in achievement not only among students attending different high schools, but among students in the same high school. A conceptual framework enumerates the determinants of achievement, including school and community characteristics, student background, and quantity of schooling in the specific curricular areas of mathematics, English, foreign language, fine arts, social studies, and science. The sample used was 9,195 high school seniors in 725 schools taken from the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972, a nationally representative probability sample of high school seniors. The results suggest that quantity of schooling has a positive effect on academic achievement. The more the achievement is school-related, the larger is the resulting effect of the quantity of schooling. This was especially true for mathematics. Quantity of schooling also had positive effects on achievement in science and English; less clear results were found in the areas of vocabulary and reading comprehension, although quantity of schooling did continue to have a positive effect on achievement.

Teacher effectiveness research : implications for the reading profession by Gerald G Duffy( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to create a foundation for collaboration between research on teaching and research on reading, this critical review of teacher effectiveness first provides a historical perspective as a means for creating a "common ground" between the two fields. Teacher effectiveness findings are then presented in two major categories. The first examines direct instruction, classroom management, and psychological conditions as these contribute to opportunity to learn. The second examines the research on teacher planning and teacher decision making as these illustrate the prevalence of technical teacher behavior. Implications for the reading profession are presented in terms of teacher education, reading research, and possible cooperative ventures between research on reading and research on teaching. The prevalent theme throughout the review is the need for both reading and teaching research to begin looking beyond opportunity to learn and technical teacher behavior to examine the qualitative dimensions of teacher effectiveness.
