Title: College students' perceptions of the characteristics of effective teachers of deaf and hard-of-hearing students
Author: Fitch, Charles
Abstract: The fundamental purpose for conducting this study is to determine whether certain attributes of "effective teachers" can be identified, which stimulate student interest in learning. For the purpose of this study the term "effective" is defined to mean, "the ability to motivate students to want to learn." Seasoned classroom veterans, as well as student teachers, could benefit from research related to character traits of effective teachers. The goal is to discuss which characteristics are valued by college students enrolled in the Business Technology program at NTID. By identifying specific characteristics that these students value, teachers in this discipline may improve and or change their teaching style to match the needs of the their students. Whether one is an experienced teacher or a student teacher, this research can be used as a communicative bridge between teacher and student.
