Summary

This preliminary report covers the first stage of research into teacher preferences for teaching situations. It assessed preferences of teacher trainees and determined any change in their attitude after an intensive teacher training program. Two sets of line drawings were used, the first showing ten arrangements of classroom furniture and the second showing five face-to-face teaching arrangements, both sets ranging from a tutorial to a lecture situation. The subjects were 152 Stanford teacher interns, 35 male and 117 female, all planning to teach in secondary schools and all without teaching experience. Pre- and posttest data were obtained, with a 6-week interval for teaching instruction. The drawings were used in a paired-comparison format and students also ranked them by order of preference. Results are set out in five tables and show a significant relationship between physical surroundings and interpersonal teaching preferences. The results also appear stable from pre- to posttest and whether viewed by the interns as prospective student or prospective teacher. Future research will be concerned with establishing personality correlates based on assessments of authoritarianism, and traditionalism as opposed to progressivism. (MBM)
