Abstract

This paper outlines some of the significant aspects of research in teaching. Three phases can be distinguished in this research. They are the descriptive, the pragmatic and the eclectic-synthetic ones. The descriptive phase is characterized by the development of classroom observation schedules and the provision of sets of concepts permitting teachers and research workers to communicate about procedures. The categorization of behaviors has resulted in more attention being given to them. Hopefully, the vocabulary and concepts generated in the descriptive phase will not only aid in communicating ideas about teaching but will lead to a greater control over the process.
