    Abstract PDF
    This study analyzed in-service education programs for class critique in order to prepare for protocol or procedures to educate teachers on this. The education program for class critique co-organized by the S education board office and C National University of Education consisted of four selective courses for social studies, science, Korean and mathematics. This study provided descriptions on the characteristics and experiences of five instructors of four courses to explore the common characteristics or procedures and try to find differences among them. Four class critique education programs shared common elements of activities that can be included in the protocol for class critique education. These included introductory activities to provide contexts, meaning and a bigger picture of class critique, sharing ideas on, watching videotaped, and observing and describing classes, as well as examining transcripts, evaluating with checklists, exploring contexts and backgrounds using virtual interviews, searching for impressive scenes using open-coding, narrowing focus with perspectives, finding themes for critique with axial coding, expressing critique with analogies, and writing a critique. Issues in class critiques were raised based on the differences of four class critique programs.

    Kim, HyoSu | 2016, 1(1) | pp.47~73 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to develop and practice a instructional coaching program suited to schools. This study investigates the perception of instructional coaching, change in the culture in a school, and promoting factors and limiting factors in order to consider implications of the school-based instructional coaching program. The topics of this research are as follows. First, what is the school-based instructional coaching program, based on teachers’ reflection? Second, what changes did teachers recognize when exercising the school-based instructional coaching program? Third, what are the promoting factors and limiting factors of the changes at schools where the instructional coaching programs were implemented? Fourth, what does this study imply about operating this instructional coaching program? To investigate this study topic, a instructional coaching program was applied to S middle school. The data from the survey and focusing group interview were analyzed and interpreted systematically, and some results were produced. As a result of the study, the following are changes that teachers recognized in the school where the instructional coaching program was applied. First, professional and collegial relationships among teachers were facilitated. Second, teachers began to share what they are concerned about. Third, many teachers restored the identity as a teacher. Fourth, many teachers began to reflect on their teaching. Fifth, mutual relationships between a teacher and students were developed. Sixth, collaborative learning increased after practicing the new teaching. The following is the result of the study on promoting factors and limiting factors to understand the context of the change in the culture at a school. The promoting factors are trusting the leading group for the change, having intimacy among teachers, building an adequate support system at a school. The limiting factors are the fear of an open class, failure in establishing trusting relationship among teachers, and the hectic schedule at a school. This case study about the application of the instructional coaching program at the S middle school implies three things. First, this case study demonstrates that the instructional coaching can be performed in a school. Second, the application of the instructional coaching program at the S middle school gives insight into development of teacher competency, and teacher collaborative learning. Third, the S middle school case implies changing the paradigm is needed, from teacher learning community to teacher caring community providing emotional support for one another. This study is significant in the sense that a school-based instructional coaching program was designed, it was implemented for a relatively long time, and changes in the school that teachers recognize were studied. Further precise study of the instructional coaching program is required.

    A Study of In-Service Teacher Training Program Development By Using Cases of Teachings By International Teachers in Foreign Schools

    Kim, HyangJoung | Sun-Kyung Lee | Cho Yong Hoon | 2016, 1(1) | pp.101~122 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to develop a K-12 in-service teacher training program that is anticipated to help teachers to understand the classroom cultures of schools in foreign countries and reflect their teachings in their classrooms by comparing their teachings and the teachings of international teachers in foreign countries. The program was constructed based on the teaching critique method, which includes modules that facilitate program participants to review and criticize video-recorded teachings of teachers in foreign countries. The program participants were asked to criticize the recorded teachings by considering the reflective points as follows: (1) the characteristics of the international teachers' teachings and their classroom cultures in the recorded teachings, (2) the similarities and the differences between the reviewed teachings and the program participants' teachings in general, and (3) the findings that the participants can use for developing their teaching abilities and skills. The researchers guided the program participants by providing detailed information about the recorded teachings and suggesting key ideas that the program participants could consider while they were criticizing the recorded teachings. By participating in this in-service teacher training program, the program participants could suggest diverse methods for reflecting their own teachings after reading and understanding diverse teachings from teachers with different cultural backgrounds from theirs.
