FACTORS INVOLVED IN DETERMINING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHERS' AND PUPILS' ATTITUDES.
YEE, ALBERT H.
INTERPERSONAL BEHAVIOR EVENTS OF TEACHERS AND PUPILS INTERACTING AND WORKING TOGETHER IN THE CLASSROOM WERE STUDIED, ANALYZED, AND EVALUATED. THE MAIN FOCUS WAS THE CAUSE AND EFFECT RELATIONSHIP OF THE INTERPERSONAL ATTITUDES OF TEACHERS AND PUPILS IN INTERMEDIATE GRADE CLASSROOMS. TEACHERS' ATTITUDES WERE MEASURED BY (1) THE MINNESOTA TEACHER ATTITUDE INVENTORY (MTAI) AND (2) A SEMANTIC-DIFFERENTIAL MEASURE PREPARED FOR THIS STUDY. PUPILS WERE MEASURED BY THE INVENTORY "ABOUT MY TEACHER." RESULTS REVEALED (1) PUPIL ATTITUDES TOWARD TEACHERS WERE RELATED TO PUPILS' SOCIAL CLASS BACKGROUNDS, (2) TEACHER ATTITUDE RELATIONSHIPS WITH PUPILS CHANGED WITH LENGTH OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE, AND (3) TEACHER INFLUENCE UPON PUPILS IS GREATER THAN PUPIL INFLUENCE UPON TEACHERS. THE INVESTIGATOR FOUND COMPLEXITY OF ATTITUDE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TEACHERS AND PUPILS TO BE GREATER THAN EXPECTED AND DREW THE CONCLUSION THAT "BETTER" TEACHERS SHOULD BE PLACED IN LOWER CLASS NEIGHBORHOODS.
