The Role of Instructors and Peers in Establishing Classroom Community
Booker, Keonya C.
Journal of Instructional Psychology, v35 n1 p12-16 Mar 2008
The need to belong and feel a sense of community is decidedly important during the undergraduate experience. In this study, undergraduate perceptions of classroom community were examined using a modified version of the College and University Community Inventory (CUCI). Results illustrate that students regard their teachers more highly in their favorite classes and peers more important in their least favorite classes. Female students also reported a stronger sense of community in their favorite classes than did males. Directions for future research are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
