The Role of Golem, Pygmalion, and Galatea Effects on Opportunistic Behavior in the Classroom.
Rowe, W. Glenn; O'Brien, James
Journal of Management Education, v26 n6 p612-28 Dec 2002

Preventive practices may create a "Golem" effect of negative self-fulfilling prophecies. By creating an atmosphere of trust, teachers may engender the Pygmalion effect of positive self-fulfilling prophecies. (Contains 20 references.) (SK)
