Teachers' Beliefs about Student Motivation: Similarities and Differences across Cultures.
Hufton, Neil R.; Elliott, Julian G.; Illushin, Leonid
Comparative Education, v39 n3 p367-89 Aug 2003
Interviews with 108 high school teachers in eastern Kentucky, northeastern England, and St. Petersburg (Russia) examined cross-cultural similarities and differences in teachers' beliefs about influences on student motivation. The findings demonstrate how comparative research that relies solely on teacher opinions can be problematic. Studies that explore the conceptual system and semantic structure of background beliefs shaping teacher opinions are urgently needed. (Contains 53 references.) (Author/SV)
