A Comparative Assessment of Classroom Management of a High Control and a Low Control Teacher through Student Perceptions and Class Observations.
Turanli, Adem Sultan; Yildirim, Ali
This study investigated the relationship between teachers' orientations to classroom management and their classroom behaviors. Participants were teachers and students at an English Preparatory School at Erciyes University in Turkey. Two teachers with different orientations (noninterventionist and interventionist) to classroom management were selected, and their 91 students were administered the Classroom Management Questionnaire. The Questionnaire included 36 items under seven subscales (empathy, enthusiasm, instruction, encouragement, control, feedback and correctives, and evaluation). Teachers were asked open-ended questions related to their orientations to managing their classrooms. Researchers also observed the teachers' classes to gather more in-depth data on how they managed their classes. T-test was used as a statistical analysis. The analysis indicated that the two teachers, with their different orientations, differed significantly on all the subscales except for one, enthusiasm. Both orientations provided certain advantages and disadvantages in different contexts. (Contains 42 references.) (Author/SM)
