Card, B. Y.; And Others
To increase teacher participation in teachers' conventions and to close the gap between the theorist and the practitioner, the Alberta Teache s Association in 1964 initiated a study concerned with teacher and parent perception of sociological factors affecting the learning process in the classroom. This monograph includes the original study and 5 resultant studies: (1) Professional Teachers' Perceptions of Social Factors; (2) Sampling and Research Procedures used with Pupils; (3) Motivation for Learning; (4) Language and Learning; and (5) The Social Climate for Learning. An appendix contains a summary of findings from the pupil surveys conducted during the original study. (DK)
