Teachers' and Students' Perceptions on Teachers' Caring Behaviors
King, Patricia C.; Chan, Tak Cheung
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of GERA (36th, Savannah, GA, Oct 21-22, 2011)
Although positive effects from caring behaviors are evident throughout research, studies exploring the differences in teachers' and students' perceptions regarding this topic are limited. This quantitative study utilized a Likert-type 22 item survey, which was developed and validated by the researchers, to explore perceptions of teachers' caring behaviors through the lens of both teachers and students; ethnic groups and classroom environments were also considered. Significant differences were found in all areas: Classroom Management, Academic Support, Interpersonal Relationships, and Respect and Trust. Students did not perceive the importance of teacher caring behaviors as much as the teachers. Implications from the results have the potential to impact student achievement from pre-k through college levels. Appended are: (1) Survey of the Behavioral Characteristics of Teacher Caring (Teacher Version); and (2) Survey of the Behavioral Characteristics of Teacher Caring (Student Version). (Contains 11 tables.)
