Promoting Changes to Teachers' Classroom Practices
  Location: SS 105
  Date: Wednesday, Aug.3
  Time: 8:50 AM -9:00 AM

  Abstract: One hundred eighteen high school and college teachers in Southern California completed a web-based survey that asked them to self-report what they do in the classroom and answer questions that might shed light on who is adopting various research-based instructional strategies (RBIS). The use of RBIS and a fraction of the course devoted to student-student interaction often correlated with the teachers' view of intelligence (incremental versus entity) and the degree to which they self-regulate their teaching. It was also observed that the teachers' classroom practices do not correlate with many one-way interactions, including attending conference presentations or reading journals. Implications for those looking to promote change in teachers, including AAPT Sections, will be discussed.
