Gelisli, Yucel
International Journal of Educational Reform, v16 n1 p96-106 Win 2007
Teachers have an important role in classroom communication, classroom behavior management, and the achievement of teaching aims. The settings in which effective and successful classroom management is conducted are bound to make a contribution to students' success. A lot of research has dealt with classroom management and teaching skills to determine the characteristics of teachers and students. This research aims at exposing the influence of teachers' conception of discipline, way of communication, and attitude toward students on students' academic success and attitudes toward school, courses, and teachers. Because the influence of teacher attitudes inside and outside the class on students' academic success was determined freely through student observation and student opinions, a qualitative approach was employed in the research. Findings reveal that students perceive teachers' way of classroom management, in-class and out-of-class attitudes, and teaching methods and strategies had positive or negative impacts on their academic success and participation in lessons.
