Relationship of Teacher Attitude to the Environment of His/Her Class.
Bhushan, Vidya
The relationship between a teacher's attitude and the environment of his or her class was examined. The research was designed to determine the effects of the learning environment on the academic achievements of students. This research measured teacher attitudes with the Minnesota Teacher Attitude Inventory (MTAI). Students' perceptions of the learning environment were measured by the Learning Environment Inventory (LEI). Data collected from 414 secondary school teachers and their students were factor-analyzed. The study revealed that a relationship does exist between teacher attitude and the learning environment of his or her class. It was found that authoritarian, pessimistic, repressing, reproachful evaluations of the students by the teacher will create friction, favoritism, and dissatisfaction in the class. This negative classroom environment will reduce learning in most areas. (DWH)
