Teachers of Turkish Grammar in the Eyes of High School Students
Erten, Ismail Hakki; Erten, Nesrin Bayraktar
Journal of Language and Linguistic Studies, v11 n1 p91-101 2015
This study sought to understand how students in Turkish grammar classes at three state high schools in Turkey perceive their teachers and the classroom interaction. A total of 142 students were asked to form metaphorical expressions to describe their teachers. A total of 124 metaphors were produced, an examination of which revealed that almost half of the students had fairly negative perceptions of their teachers. Teachers were also described to render roles of a teacher centred/fronted position. With metaphors mostly denoting passive roles for students and control oriented classroom management strategies for teachers, this study concludes that it may be conductive if teachers could revise their classroom management strategies.
