dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of a ten (10) hour Teacher's Motivational Teaching Model (TMTM) on student teachers' teaching behavior. The sample for this study consisted of 90 elementary education majors at Ball State University involved in a dental health study. Of the 90 students involved in this study, 46 were taught an experimental unit in dental health and 44 were taught a less concentrated unit in dental health. The experimental unit was 10 hours in duration and made application of operant conditioning principles, cognitive dissonance, and group decision making. A special unit in classroom first aid was also taught to remove experimental bias. The Student Teacher Observation Form (a category recording system) was developed to measure the effects of the TMTM on student teachers' teaching behavior. STOP is a four category recording system which lasts three minutes. The categories included in STOF were facts/reasons in dental health instruction, demonstrations in dental health instruction, facts/reasons in first aidinstruction, and demonstration in first aid instruction. The STOP system was taught to the classroom supervisors assigned to the student teachers. The classroom supervisors observed their student teachers for 12 minutes a day for 7 weeks. The 12 minutes of observation time were randomly selected and 6 of the minutes observed daily consisted of science health instruction. The data collected by the classroom supervisors was sent in weekly for analysis.Four major null hypotheses were considered in this study.1.1 There will be no significant difference in the amount of facts/reasons dental health instruction performed by the experimental and control groups.1.2 There will be no significant difference in the amount of demonstration dental health instruction performed by the experimental and control groups.2. There will be no significant difference in the kind of dental health instruction performed by the experimental and control groups.3.1 There will be no significant difference in the utilization of teaching materials between experimental and control groups.3.2 There will be no significant difference in the utilization of consultation services between experimental and control groups.4. There will be no significant differences in the relationship between the utilization of materials and the distance from the source of materials between experimental and control groups.In summary the following conclusions were drawn.1. Student teachers exposed to the TNfiM (experimental group)spent significantly more instruction time on facts/reasons and demonstrations in dental health than student teachers who received the less concentrated instruction (control group).2. Significantly more dental health facts/reasons and demonstration instruction occurred in the science health instructional areas than outside the science-health area.3. Student teachers in the experimental group spent significantly more time on dental health facts/reasons instruction outside the sciencehealth area than the student teachers in the control groups.4. Dental health teaching materials were utilized in similar amounts by experimental and control student teachers.5. Student teachers in the experimental and control groups utilized similar proportions between facts/reasons and demonstration instruction in dental health.6. Student teachers in the experimental groups used more dental health consultation services than students in the control groups.7. No relationship existed between students in the experimental and control groups and the utilization of dental health materials and the distance from the source of the materials. en_US
