Caring Relationships: Perspectives from Middle School Students.

A year-long interpretive study, framed by the theory of symbolic interactionism, examined the meanings of care to middle school students. Five themes emerged: care as control, equality, forgiveness, concern, and good teaching. Findings indicated not only some agreement between students and teachers on meanings and symbolic acts of care, but also individualization tied to students' unique personal experiences. (TJQ)
