Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Teacher-Student Relationships and Student Engagement in the Middle School Classroom
by Benson, Breanna, M.S., Minot State University, 2020, 70; 28156055
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the study was to attempt to determine the degree of correlation between teacher-student relationships and student engagement in the middle school setting. The researcher developed a student questionnaire to explore the students' perceptions of their teachers' relationships with them, as well as a teacher questionnaire to explore the teachers' perceptions of the students' engagement in the classroom. A data collection and data analysis was conducted at a middle school in North Dakota. Results indicated that, contrary to the literature review, there was not a strong, positive correlation between student engagement and teacher-student relationships in this particular middle school setting.
