Change in Classroom Behavior from Fall to Winter for High and Low Control Teachers.
Soar, Robert S.; And Others
This study identified two groups of teachers with different control styles and examined changes in their behavior during the year. Seventeen K-2 teachers who varied in control style were observed at the beginning of school, in late October, and during the winter. Four observation instruments, a rating device, and a classroom description were used. Analysis of variance with repeated measures showed less convergent teaching, direction, and criticism for low control teachers, but more differentiation, exploration of ideas, and acceptance. Strong teacher control, pupil negative affect, and application of previous learning decreased for both groups while teacher acceptance increased. Two interactions were significant. (Author)
