Influence of Teachers' Behaviour on Students' Adaptation after School Transition
Rupsiene, Liudmila; Kucinskiene, Ramute
Online Submission
This research aimed to reveal how students' adaptation after a school transition is related to teachers' behaviour. The gross sample of the research consisted of 1078 students (from 159 schools, representing almost all municipalities of the country) and 999 of their parents. The main research instrument was questionnaires for both children and their parents. The research revealed that the critical factor, having a positive effect on students' adaptation to a new school, is help provided by teachers to students individually. Other teachers' behaviour important for students' adaptation to a new school are friendly behaviour with students, good familiarity with their students, fair assessment and praise, clarification of the school requirements, keeping the students informed on events, care for children, experiencing difficulties in learning and children with special needs. These characteristics are alike for students of both sexes, independently from the number of school transitions they experienced, in which types of schools and educational concentres they study or where they reside.
