Exploring the Ways that Adolescents Form and Perpetuate Impressions of Their Teachers
Kucinski, Steven Jon
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The Ohio State University
This study used qualitative methodology including observations and interviews to attempt to discover how secondary students form impressions of their teachers and how those impressions are perpetuated among students, leading to teacher reputation. The findings from the study indicate that students form impressions of their teachers by assessing certain immediate elements about the teacher and class including teacher demeanor, teacher enthusiasm, teacher self-disclosure, teacher academic press, teacher approach to discipline, and teacher discussion style. Students monitor and consider three additional elements when forming extended impressions, additionally contributing to teacher reputation: level of self-confidence, teacher academic support, and sense of classroom community.
