A Study of the Relationship of Teacher Sex to Fifth Grade Boys' Sex Role Preference, General Self Concept, and Scholastic Achievement in Science and Mathematics.
Smith, Dan Faye
The purpose was to determine the effect of the male teacher on the male pupil. twenty male and 21 female fifth-grade teachers teaching a total of 280 and 287 boys respectively were studied. The "California Psychological Inventory Femininity Scale" was used with the teachers; the "Children's Personality Questionnaire Effeminacy Scale,""How I See Myself Scale," and "Metropolitan Achievement Tests" were used with the students. Findings showed that boys with male teachers had significantly lower scores in psychological effeminacy, significantly higher scores on all of the school-related self-concept factors, and that they surpassed boys with female teachers in mathematical problem-solving. No difference was found on the two peer-related self-concept factors, in mathematical computation, or in science achievement. (Author/DT)
