Self-Concept and Learning. A Review of Literature on the Relationship Between Students Self-Concept and School Achievement, and One Way to Assess a Students Attitude Toward Learning.
Millard, Joseph E.
The author contends that there is a strong relationship between a students' scholastic success and self-image. Following a brief literature review, the Self-Anchoring Attitude Scale (SAAS), an inventory designed to assess attitude, is discussed. Each subject is asked to write down what they would say about students who like to learn, and what they would say about students who dislike to learn. After the students identify the two ends of the continuum, they are asked to mark, from 1 to 9, where they believe they are in reference to students who like to learn and students who dislike to learn. A teacher can use this information in assessing the students' self image toward learning. A twenty-page list of references is included. (Author/JAC)
