Abstract: The Wisconsin Teacher Education Research Project was one of the four projects, supported since 1958 by the National Institute of Mental Health, designed to study the influence of teacher education programs on the professional development of teachers. The other three projects were located at the Bank Street College of Education in New York City, San Francisco State College, and the University of Texas. The four studies were independent of each other in objectives, design, and methodology. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of different instructional approaches upon college students preparing to be elementary school teachers. Although the major concern was with the mental health of the pupils they would ultimately teach, two related questions were asked which influenced the design of the research. These questions were: (1) What is the influence of different instructional approaches in a teacher training program upon the communication behavior of student teachers? and (2) What aspects of teacher communication behavior, if any, have a measurable influence upon mental health in the Classroom?
