Teacher Managerial Behaviors and Student On-Task Behavior.
Goldstein, Jane McCarthy; Weber, Wilford A.
The hypothesis that teacher managerial behavior may have a greater effect than teacher instructional behavior on ultimate student academic achievement is supported through the explication of seven major approaches to class management. Forms of teacher managerial behavior examined are: (1) authoritarian; (2) behavior modification; (3) common sense; (4) group process; (5) instructional; (6) permissive; and (7) socioemotional climate. The relationship between these seven clusters of teacher behaviors and student on-task behaviors are extended to infer causality between the teacher behaviors and the students' academic achievement levels. A bibliography is appended. (LH)
