DIMENSIONS OF TEACHER LEADERSHIP IN CLASSROOM SOCIAL SYSTEMS PUPIL EFFECTS ON PRODUCTIVITY, MORALE AND COMPLIANCE.
GORDON, C. WAYNE; AND OTHERS
PUPIL PRODUCTIVITY, MORALE, AND COMPLIANCE HAVE BEEN ANALYZED AS FUNCTIONS OF TEACHER LEADERSHIP INDEPENDENTLY OF THE QUESTION OF WHETHER THE TEACHER BEHAVIOR WHICH WAS FAVORABLE TO ONE OF THESE EFFECTS IN PUPIL BEHAVIOR WOULD ALSO BE FAVORABLE TO ANOTHER TYPE OF EFFECT. INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF EFFECTS WERE STUDIED WITH RESPECT TO THE QUESTION--DOES THE TEACHER WHO ACHIEVES THE GREATEST TOTAL LEARNING GAIN ALSO ACHIEVE HIGH MORALE OR COMPLIANCE. MEASURES OF PRODUCTIVITY, MORALE, AND COMPLIANCE WERE CONSIDERED IN LIGHT OF VARIABLES OF SEX, GRADE, AGE, INITIAL ACHIEVEMENT SCORES, GEOGRAPHIC MOBILITY, INTELLIGENCE, SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS, AND PREVIOUS HISTORY OF COOPERATIVE OR UNCOOOPERATIVE BEHAVIOR AT SCHOOL. PRODUCTIVITY WAS MEASURED BY A SERIES OF ACHIEVEMENT TESTS. PUPIL MORALE WAS MEASURED ON A SET OF QUESTIONS INCLUDED ON A FALL AND SPRING QUESTIONNAIRE. PUPIL COMPLIANCE WAS MEASURED IN RELATION TO REQUIREMENTS OF TASK PERFORMANCE AND CLASSROOM ORDER. THE STUDY REVEALED A SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHER LEADERSHIP AND THE THREE EFFECTS. LEADERSHIP FUNCTIONS WERE FOUND TO BE SCALABLE. THE EFFECTS INTERACTED SO THAT THE LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE ON ANY SINGLE DIMENSION WAS DEPENDENT ON THE LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE IN THE OTHER TWO DIMENSIONS. THESE FINDINGS ENABLED THE RESEARCHER TO SPECIFY THE TEACHER LEADERSHIP STYLES WHICH MAXIMIZE THE GREATEST NUMBER OF EFFECTS.
