Summary

A study was conducted to discover if five stereotypes about teachers who attend conferences would hold true. The stereotypes are: (1) more elementary than secondary school teachers attend conferences, (2) professional conference goers tend to be experienced teachers, (3) more women than men attend conferences, (4) teachers want specific ideas that they can use in their classrooms, and (5) teachers are not interested in articulation and prefer sessions that focus on specific grade levels. Fifty-seven of the 328 teacher-participants at a one-day, university sponsored conference on the teaching of written composition were asked to log their time and to evaluate each session they attended. The teachers were able to choose from 20 workshops, five demonstrations, and three talks. Sessions were provided for all grades, kindergarten through university level. Analysis of the teachers' responses supported the first four stereotypes: the teachers tended to be experienced, to teach in the lower grades, to be female, and to be interested more in specific teaching ideas than in general discussions. The responses also partially supported the fifth stereotype. (FL)
