BEGINNING TEACHER CHARACTERISTICS AND BEGINNING TEACHER PROBLEMS--SOME PREDICTIVE RELATIONSHIPS.
TURNER, RICHARD L.
AS PART OF A LARGER STUDY DEALING WITH THE BEGINNING TEACHER'S ADJUSTMENT TO TEACHING, THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BEGINNING TEACHER'S PERSONAL-SOCIAL AND PROBLEM-SOLVING CHARACTERISTICS AND THE TEACHING PROBLEMS EXPERIENCED BY THEM WAS EXAMINED. DATA WAS GATHERED THROUGH THE ANALYSIS OF RESULTS OF THE TEACHER CHARACTERISTICS SCHEDULE (TCS, ADMINISTERED AS THEY BEGAN TEACHING), INTERVIEWS WITH THE ELEMENTARY SUPERVISOR, THE DIRECTOR OF ELEMENTARY EDUCATION OR THE SUPERINTENDENT, AND A QUESTIONNAIRE FILLED OUT BY THE PRINCIPAL OF EACH TEACHER. FROM THE RESPONSES 8 CATEGORIES OF SCHOOL PROBLEMS WERE ISOLATED. SCORES OF TEACHERS IN A PROBLEM CATEGORY WERE THEN COMPARED BY ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE WITH THOSE OF THE NO PROBLEM GROUP ON THE 10 TEACHER CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TCS. AMONG THE FINDINGS WERE--(A) TEACHERS WITH SUBJECT MATTER PROBLEMS DID NOT DIFFER SIGNIFICANTLY ON ANY CHARACTERISTIC FROM THOSE HAVING NO PROBLEMS, (B) THOSE WITH MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS HAD LESS FAVORABLE ATTITUDES TOWARDS THE SCHOOL STAFF THAN THOSE WITH NO PROBLEMS, (C) TEACHERS WITH DISCIPLINE PROBLEMS DIFFERED SIGNIFICANTLY ON SIX CHARACTERISTICS--(1) WARM, UNDERSTANDING, (FACTOR X), (2) ORGANIZED, BUSINESSLIKE, (FACTOR Y), (3) ATTITUDE TOWARDS SCHOOL STAFF, (FACTOR Q), (4) STIMULATING, IMAGINATIVE, (FACTOR Z), (5) TRADITIONAL VS. PERMISSIVE, (FACTOR B), AND (6) PROBLEM SOLVING PERFORMANCE. (AW)
