Abstract

DEL PRETTE, Zilda A. Pereira et al. Teacher social skills in classroom: a case study. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 1998, vol.11, n.3, pp. 591-603. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79721998000300016.

This paper presents a case study concerning the results of a teacher videotaped performance analysis, before and after her participation in an Interpersonal Professional Development Program. The intervention goal - to promote teacher’s competence in structuring educative social interactions - also served as a basis for classifying teacher behaviors in categories and subcategories of a classroom performance typology. A comparison of teacher’s performance before and after intervention was made. The results showed prominent changes in the teacher performance - related to the intervention goals - and suggested the usefulness of the procedure for evaluating the effectiveness of this kind of intervention. Some questions concerning procedures for evaluating teachers’ performance were also made.

Keywords : social skills; teachers in-service training; School and Educational Psychology; teacher-pupil interaction; social knowledge construction.
