When asked who their favourite teacher is, and why, here's what Aussie kids said

By ITS Education Asia

Here is a very interesting article from School News Australia about why children like their favorite teacher.  Well worth a read.

Relationships between students and teachers at school are important. They predict students’ motivationperformance, and expectations of future relationships.

Interviews of  96 students from a range of schools in Years 3 to 9 were designed to find out who students remember as their favourite and least favourite teachers and also what made those relationships positive or negative.

In the study, published in the journal School Psychology Review, all students described similar factors that made them like their teachers — care, kindness and humour.

The article finishes with a list of things that teachers can take from the research.
