Turanli, Adem Sultan; Yildirim, Ali
This study examined how Turkish students in an English preparatory school expected their teachers to manage their classes. A sample of 161 students who were studying at the English Preparatory School at Erciyes University were administered the Questionnaire of Preferred Teacher's Classroom Management Behaviors. The questionnaire included 32 items in 3 dimensions: emotional, instructional, and managerial. Results provided a set of classroom management behaviors that students expected from teachers in English learning classes. Students wanted teachers to be willing to teach and display enthusiasm while teaching. They expected teachers to assign tasks that were neither too easy nor too difficult. Students believed that teachers should be aware of students' individual needs and do their best to motivate and encourage them. Students expected teachers to be patient, understanding, and friendly toward them and avoid having favorites. Students wanted teachers to clearly describe objectives, thus decreasing ambiguity. They also expected teachers to be open to, and provide time for, questions and to offer necessary feedback. Students wanted teachers to manage time, student behaviors, and environment effectively. They expected teachers to be considerate about time management. They also expected teachers to never laugh at students for any reason. (Contains 21 references.) (SM)
