This study investigated the use of video cases to teach literacy instruction to special education pre-service teachers. One class of pre-service teachers was examined for knowledge gains and attitudes towards video cases as an instructional medium.
Results suggest that video cases did not result in greater learning of phonemic awareness or reading comprehension topics than traditional lectures with discussion teaching. They also provided comparative data on student teachers' responses to video versus traditional face-to-face instruction. Further implications for special education teacher preparation and future research directions are discussed.
