Abstract
  • The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between teacher behavior and understanding of children's behavior in a group of beginning practicum student teacher aides. The subjects were thirteen female college students enrolled in either Child Development or Nursery School Teaching programs. These students had all completed at least one course in Family Relations, one term in General Psychology, and two courses in Child Development. Participation in the study was on a voluntary basis. The data consisted of total scores on two primary types of observed teacher influences, dominative teacher behavior and socially integrative teacher behavior, and the total score on the Film Test for Understanding Behavior (FUB) in addition to the three subscale scores of this instrument, the knowledge, guidance, and sensitivity subscales.The statistical analysis consisted of the nonparametric statistical test of Spearman's rank order correlation coefficient. This test was employed to explore the null hypothesis that there would be no relationship between teacher behavior and understanding of children's behavior in beginning practicum nursery school student teacher aides. None of the correlations between the scores on the two instruments used to measure teacher behavior and behavioral understanding was significant. These findings indicate a need for further study of the relationship between teacher behavior and the understanding of children's behavior. The amount and nature of data gathered in this study would lend itself to further data analysis. For example, these data could be studied in relation to data collected on students at progressively higher levels of practicum participation. In addition the investigation of different relationships and combinations of relationships among the many variables could provide data for future studies.
