Perceptions about team teaching: From Assistant Language Teachers and Japanese Teachers of English

Writer(s):

The JET (Japan Exchange and Teaching) Programme is an exchange program that is well known both domestically and internationally. Assistant Language Teachers (ALT), who comprise the majority of the participants, team-teach English with Japanese Teachers of English (JTE) in local public schools. In spite of its long history (20 years), there are still challenges that both ALTs and JTEs encounter in terms of team teaching, especially when it comes to ALT’s duties. This study examined preferences for and frequencies of ALTs’ duties. A needs analysis was conducted with 99 participants (71 JTEs & 28 ALTs) in a central prefecture in Japan. The participants were asked to rate how often they perceived that they performed each task (frequency) and to what degree they liked each task (preference). A four-point Likert scale was used to score their answers. After MANOVAs and t-tests were run, mean differences were descriptively analyzed.
この研究は外国人指導助手(ALT)の職務内容に対しての認識を調査したものである。99人の参加者(JTE71人、ALT28人)にアンケート調査を行い、分散分析とT検定を使用して、次の3つの比較を行った。一つ目はALTとJTEがどのような職務内容を好むか比較し、二つ目にALTが考える職務内容に求めている事と実際にその職務内容を行っている頻度の差を比較した。最後にJTEがALTに期待する職務内容と実際にALTが行っている頻度の差を比較した。これらのデータを検証しながらティームティーチングに対しての改善策を議論する。
