Building a Model to Define the Concept of Teacher Success in Hong Kong
Elizabeth, Cheung Lai-man; May, Cheng May-hung; Chee, Pang King
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v24 n3 p623-634 Apr 2008
The research studies how outstanding teachers from Hong Kong conceptualize teacher success or effectiveness. This study adds to the knowledge base concerned by raising the importance of the coexistence of personal attributes and professional qualities as well as contextual factors, in bringing out the success of a teacher. It draws the attention of teacher educators/trainers and school administrators to the necessity of viewing the concept of teacher success from a broader perspective, instead of focusing narrowly on the professional qualities of a teacher. It also provides insights for school administrators in selecting teachers or supporting their work.
