Students' Perceptions of Teachers: Implications for Classroom Practices for Supporting Students' Success
Guess, Pamela; Bowling, Sara
Preventing School Failure, v58 n4 p201-206 2014
Positive psychology represents a conceptual framework that emphasizes the need to capitalize on individuals' strengths in order to facilitate optimal functioning. As applied to the educational setting, these concepts have primarily been investigated via teaching life skills to students that encourage overall wellness. School-based strategies for supporting student wellness have primarily been focused on attempts to identify and remediate problems as opposed to also viewing student functioning from the positive psychology lens of "what is right with people." In this article, the authors review the literature that highlights what is right, specifically within the context of teacher-student relationships. A particular focus on what is right about these relationships from the perspectives of students is emphasized.
