A Study of the Relationship Between the Verbal Interaction of Elementary Science Teachers With Their Students and Students' Creativity.
Puranajoti, Therachai
Investigated was the relationship between verbal interaction of elementary science teachers with their students and students' creativity. Two populations were sampled from the elementary schools in Bangkok, Thailand. Eight teachers and 64 second grade students comprised the sample. Interaction was analyzed by the Flanders System. Creativity was assessed from student scores on the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (TTCT). Pearson product-moment correlations were used to determine relationships. Conclusions included the following: (1) Indirect teacher approaches prompted greater creative thinking; and (2) Creativity in girls was influenced to a greater extent by teacher behavior than was creativity in boys.
