ATTITUDES TOWARD EDUCATION AND PERCEPTION OF DESIRABLE TEACHER BEHAVIORS--A Q STUDY.
SONTAG, MARVIN
TO INVESTIGATE HOW ATTITUDES TOWARD EDUCATION INFLUENCE PERCEPTION OF DESIRABLE TEACHER BEHAVIORS, AN EDUCATIONAL ATTITUDES INSTRUMENT (KERLINGER'S ES-VII) AND AN 80-ITEM TEACHER BEHAVIORS Q-SORT WERE ADMINISTERED TO 80 ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS. THIRTY-TWO TEACHERS WERE RATED AS "PROGRESSIVE," 32 "TRADITIONALIST," AND 16 AS "INTERMEDIATE" ON ES-VII. FORTY RANDOMLY SELECTED SUBJECTS SORTED BEHAVIORS AS IMPORTANT FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS, AND 40 FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS. THE TWO RESULTING 40 BY 40 MATRICES WERE FACTOR ANALYZED, AND FOUR FACTORS WERE EXTRACTED FROM EACH. CORRELATIONS FOUND BETWEEN ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY BEHAVIORS FOR (1) CONCERN FOR PUPILS (AS BY PROVIDING INDIVIDUALIZED MATERIALS AND SHOWING CONCERN FOR PUPILS' PERSONAL PROBLEMS), AND (2) STRUCTURE AND SUBJECT MATTER (PRESENTING WELL PLANNED LESSONS AND ADMINISTERING DISCIPLINE CONSISTENTLY). GENERALLY, PROGRESSIVES LOADED ON CONCERN FOR TEACHERS WHILE TRADITIONALISTS LOADED ON STRUCTURE AND SUBJECT MATTER. THUS THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT THE PROGRESSIVISM-TRADITIONALISM DICHOTOMY UNDERLIES PERCEPTION OF TEACHER BEHAVIORS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION ANNUAL MEETING (NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 1967). (LC)
