Example text

Part of my ignorance is the shared ignorance which those of us who study teaching have and which is reflected in the relatively low-level descriptions and accounts of teaching which are found in books and in journals such as this. A second motivation which I have therefore is to encourage others in the pursuit of a deeper understanding of the teaching process. The task is far too great for any one individual alone. A third motivation is to do whatever I can to improve the quality of teaching. This means that I do not consider myself to be a ‘neutral’ researcher, and that, like anyone else, I have views about the criteria implied by any statements like ‘improving the quality of teaching’.

It would be interesting to know what agreement exists between experienced teachers in terms of their dimensions of classification, and to speculate on what one might do with such ‘agreement’ if it exists. Teachers appear to develop strategies for dealing with incidents ‘which work for them’. They seem to assess the effectiveness of what they do at any incident and use that assessment to increase or decrease the use of their strategy. It is interesting to contrast several teachers responses to the same incident.

It is significant that often they accuse me of glorifying their ‘response system’ by calling it decision-making. Only occasionally, at key points in the lesson, do they feel they are actively and consciously making decisions. But is this true of student teachers as well? It would seem that a beginner must be forced into making decisions more frequently simply because he has not yet had time for his routines to get established. But is this true? And many more questions... I hope then that this brief paper, written in a highly personal way, conveys the flavour, if not all the detail, of the research I am engaged in.
