The Relationship Between Sixth Grade Students' Perceptions of Their Teachers' Feelings Toward Them and Reading Achievement.
Borovetz, Frank Charles, Jr.
This doctoral dissertation examines students' perceptions of their teachers' feelings toward them and possible relationships that exist between perceptions and reading achievement. In addition, the study sought to determine if differences in positive feelings exist among Caucasian, Negro, and Indian students; between Title I and non-Title I students; and between male and female students. Five hundred twenty-one subjects comprised the sample for this study. It was concluded that when students had positive perceptions of their teachers' feelings toward them, reading achievement scores were higher than when negative feelings were perceived; when differences between individual questions on the "Feeling Tone Questionnaire" existed, this indicated lower reading achievement; and the rank order of students' positive perceptions of their teachers' feelings toward them were: Caucasians, Negroes, Indians; non-Title I students, Title I students; females, males. Recommendations for further research are included. (Author/RB)
