Progressive Reforms in Education: A Search for Progressive Teaching Strategies
Master of Science
This study investigated the extent to which progressive teaching structures were incorporated in classrooms by public high school teachers in a diverse city in the San Francisco Bay Area. Teachers of core academic subjects at identified high schools volunteered to complete a survey on their use of three progressive teaching strategies: 1) authentic assessment; 2) cooperative group-based learning; and 3) student-driven curriculum. Results indicated that most teachers were aware of the first two strategies and used them with some frequency, but that student-choice was not as widely utilized or thought to be as important.
