Characteristics of Mathematics Teachers that Affect Students' Learning. Final Report.
Rosenbloom, Paul C.; And Others
The study reported investigated the following questions: (1) Is teacher effectiveness related to the pattern of interaction between teacher and student and to the classroom climate created by this interaction? (2) Is teacher effectiveness related to the productive thinking abilities of teachers as reflected in the submission of their daily logs? Data for the investigation were collected during the consecutive school terms from 1960-1962. The subjects were 127 teachers who had participated in a field study for the evaluation of School Mathematics Study Group (SMSG) materials from grades 7 through 12. Teaching effectiveness contributed significantly to the attitudes and perceptions of pupils concerning teachers and their methods, the school, text materials, and the class as a group. The most effective teachers produced a greater variety of ideas about success and failure in their teaching and offered a greater variety of alternative ways of teaching mathematical concepts. (RP)
