PUPIL-TEACHER ADJUSTEMENT AND MUTUAL ADAPTATION IN CREATING CLASSROOM LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS.
FOX, ROBERT S.; AND OTHERS
AN ANALYSIS OF THE DYNAMICS OF THE LEARNING SITUATIONS IN A VARIETY OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOMS WAS UNDERTAKEN. THE PROJECT MADE A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE PATTERNS OF COOPERATION OR ALIENATION AMONG PARENTS, TEACHERS, PEERS, AND INDIVIDUAL PUPILS. THE PATTERNS CREATE LEARNING CULTURES OF DIFFERENT PRODUCTIVITY IN VARIOUS CLASSROOMS. THE DATA FOR THE STUDY WERE COLLECTED FROM QUESTIONNAIRES AND GROUP INTERVIEWS WITH PUPILS, QUESTIONNAIRES AND INTERVIEWS WITH TEACHERS, AND A BRIEF PERIOD OF CLASSROOM OBSERVATION FOR EACH OF THE 30 CLASSROOMS STUDIED, INCLUDING BOTH ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY LEVELS. PUPILS RATED THEMSELVES AND THEIR PEERS ON SEVERAL SOCIAL AND INTELLECTUAL FACTORS AND RESPONDED TO ITEMS REGARDING THEMSELVES, THEIR PEERS, PARENTS, AND TEACHERS. SEVERAL STRONG RELATIONSHIPS WERE FOUND BETWEEN PUPIL CHARACTERISTICS AND THEIR PARENTAL, PEER, AND TEACHER INFLUENCES. A FEW OF THE RESULTS WERE AS FOLLOWS--(1) PARENTS WHO ARE PERCEIVED BY THEIR CHILDREN AS SUPPORTIVE OF SCHOOL LIFE HAVE MORE FORMAL EDUCATION THAN THOSE WHO ARE INDIFFERENT OR NONSUPPORTIVE, (2) ASSOCIATIONS EXIST BETWEEN ACTUAL LIKING STATUS AND ATTITUDES TOWARD SELF, ONLY FOR PUPILS WITH HIGH POTENCY OF INVOLVEMENT IN THE PEER GROUP, AND (3) GIRLS UTILIZE THEIR INTELLECTUAL ABILITIES MORE HIGHLY THAN BOYS. SAMPLE FORMS OF QUESTIONNAIRES USED ARE INCLUDED.
