Pupil control ideology and teacher influence in the classroom by Ronald E Goldenberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study investigated whether pupil control ideology of teachers differentially affected their operational behavior in the classroom. Elementary school teachers employed in a suburban St. Louis district (n=260) responded to the Pupil Control Ideology Form (pci). From this group 20 were selected to comprise two experimental groups: those with highest scores (custodial) and those with lowest (humanistic). Flanders' interaction analysis was then used to classify the classroom verbal interaction of each teacher in the two groups during each of three 20-minute observation periods. Data was analyzed by utilizing the test of significance of a difference between proportions, z to test three null hypotheses. There was no significant difference between the proportions of indirect verbal behavior, of direct verbal behavior, or of student verbal behavior. However, the humanistic and custodial Ss in this study differed in the frequency of use of verbal behaviors categorized as 1) accepting and developing student ideas; 2) lecturing, giving facts or opinions; and 3) student-initiated verbal behaviors. In each case, the humanistic group of teachers utilized significantly more verbal behaviors classified as indirect than did the custodial group of teachers. It is therefore concluded that the pupil control ideology of the teacher does differentially affect selected verbal behavior in the classroom. (Author/JS)

A Comparison of Cbte and Conventional Teacher Education Programs by Ronald Goldenberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study utilized elementary teachers who had completed either competency-based (cbte) or conventional teacher education programs and their principals to evaluate undergraduate preparation for classroom teaching. A 15 item questionnaire was administered and the data analyzed. Results obtained from the analysis of the teachers' data indicated perceived differences in the emphases of cbte and conventional teacher education programs. Program emphasis for CBTE-prepared teachers was on instruction, whereas an emphasis on structuring the classroom environment emerged for conventionally prepared teachers. Principals were unable to detect differences between competency-based or conventional preparation. Analysis of variance revealed non-significant F-ratios for both the principals and teachers groups.

The Relationships Between Principals' and Teachers' Perceptions of theQuality of College Preparation for Teaching Competence by Ronald Goldenberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study is to determine how recent elementary education graduates and their principals perceive, in terms of competencies, preparation for teaching. A poll was taken of a group of teachers in their first year of teaching in elementary schools. Their principals were asked to respond to a similar poll. The study was designed to provide answers to the following questions: (1) How do recent graduates of an elementary education program perceive their undergraduate preparation for teaching? (2) How do elementary school principals perceive the undergraduate preparation of their teachers? (3) Do principals and teachers perceive undergraduate preparation for teaching in the same manner? The results seem to indicate that principals and teachers view the preparation for teaching in a different manner. Principals do not perceive the various components of preparing teachers, but rather view teacher education in its totality. Teachers view their preparation as being composed of several major elements and view their teaching programs as being somewhat more effective in preparing them to teach than did the principals. While both teachers and principals gave approval to undergraduate preparation, there were indications that program improvement is needed. (Jd)
The Advisor: Supportive Assistance for Effective Changes in Education by Ronald Goldenberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper discusses the role of the advisor in relation to teachers when a major curriculum change is made in a school. Twenty specific suggestions are made to guide the advisor in performing the task of helping teachers adjust to new situations and different approaches or methods of teaching. Two vital points are made on the subject of handling changing situations. First, imposed change, whether from outside the system or from outside the classroom, is seldom effective or enduring. Real growth arises from the needs and aspirations of individual teachers and administrators, supported by and responsive to the community they serve. Second, persons serving in advisory roles can facilitate change only if they are available to work with school staffs and their right to be there is clearly established by the school system. A relationship of trust and mutual support between teachers and advisors is the key to successful change. (Jd)
