Abstract

Eighty teachers of known educational attitudes were exposed to a teacher behaviors Q sort. Half the subjects sorted the behaviors according to their importance for elementary school teachers, and half for high school teachers. Four persons factors emerged from each analysis. The elementary school factors were: Concern for Students, Structure and Subject Matter, Stimulating Teaching, and Self-Control in Teaching. The high school factors were: Concern for Students, Structure and Subject Matter General Subject Matter Presentation, and Norm Rules. The "Concern for Students" factors from the two analysis were sustantially correlated (r = .77). The "Structure and Subject Matter" factors were also substantially correlated (r + .70). The former factors reflected progressive tenets of teaching while the latter reflected traditional tenets of teaching.
