Abstract *
This paper re-visits 1976 study of Coach John Woodenπs teaching practices in light of new information (Tharp & Gallimore, 1976). The original study reported discrete acts of teaching, including the number of instructions, hustles, praises, among other instructional moves. In addition to quantitative observational data, at the time note was taken of the concise nature of Woodenπs teaching acts including the dense and rapid information frequently delivered, brevity of utterances, and tightly organized practices. However, these qualities were only indirectly reflected in the quantitative coding scheme. Using the reports of a former UCLA player, published sources, and an interview with Coach Wooden, we re-examined the original data to better understand the context of his practices and his underlying pedagogical philosophy. We conclude that exquisite and diligent planning lay behind the heavy information load, economy of talk, and practice organization. If we could do the study again, to gain a fuller interpretation of the observational data, we would press harder to obtain the perspective of players, assistant coaches, and Coach Wooden himself. Had qualitative methods been used to obtain a richer account of the context of his practices, including his pedagogical philosophy, the 1974-1975 quantitative data would have been more fully mined and interpreted.
