Clothing and the Affects on a Teacher's Image: How Students View Them
Mosca, Joseph B.; Buzza, John
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v6 n1 p59-66 2013
Clothing is an essential element of our daily lives that is basically an expression of who we are. People shop to buy clothing for a variety of reasons, such as enjoyment and socialization. It is fundamental that participating in social activities and life satisfaction are related to well-being. Our well-being is influenced by education, income, health, and how we see ourselves. Clothing is a means by which we see ourselves (Mee Joung and Miller, 2007). The purpose of this study is to try and determine what affect clothing has on students' comfort zone and whether instructors' clothing creates images of friendly, trustworthy, and approachable; it is not to measure the impact of instructors' attire on students' perceptions of teaching competence.
