Studied the influence of 2 types of verbal feedback on changes in teacher perceptions and behavior. The experiment was conducted in a microteaching-type laboratory setting in which 36 experienced junior high school teachers taught the same content to 2 groups. Feedback between sessions consisted of information about (a) discrepancy between stated intent (S's estimate of how he or she would teach) and observed behavior and (b) student learning outcomes. Teacher behavior was coded using interaction analysis categories. Feedback treatments were associated with significant changes in teacher intent. No significant effects were observed for teacher behavior or for the interaction of treatments. (15 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
