Perceptions of High and Low Verbal Participators.
Ahlbrand, William P., Jr.
The relationship between classroom participation and student self concept is examined. This study tests the degree to which high and low participators differ in perception of (1) their own status with their peers, (2) their academic status, (3) their interest in studying and (4) dimensions of teacher consideration, teacher stress on subject, and teacher punitiveness. Sociometric questionnaires and tape recordings were used to analyze data from 90 fourth, fifth and sixth graders. Results indicate that high participators are more positive about themselves, their subject, and their perceptions of the teacher. (MPJ)
