The Effect of Turkish Geography Teacher's Personality on His Teaching Experiences
Ozel, Ali
International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, v2 n3 p75-78 Jul 2007
It is aimed in this study to determine to what extent the geography teachers at high schools reflect their personality on their teaching experiences. It has been observed by researchers that teachers with different personalities affect their students in different ways. The personal characteristics of a teacher play a significant role in determining the limits of his studies and affect his teaching experiences. Those who remain indifferent to activities and undetermined in planning have a negative effect on both classroom relations and each student's character development. Survey model was used in the study. The paper was formed through a questionnaire on 198 teachers, and showed that teachers reflected their personalities on their teaching experiences as their ages and seniority increased. The personal assets the teachers found in themselves were self-confidence, discipline, tidiness, justice and job-satisfaction. (Contains 4 tables.)
