THE INFLUENCE OF CONVICTIONS CONCERNING THE NATURE OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT ON TEACHERS’ REACTIONS TO AGGRESSIVE STUDENTS’ BEHAVIOURS

J. Kołodziejczyk

Jagiellonian University (POLAND)
Teachers’ convictions concerning the origins of human nature and development, which are their own psychological conceptions, constitute an element of their knowledge of the reality and a basis for creating notions and assessing interpersonal processes. The presented research was trying to determine the relation between the way teachers understand human nature and development (as growing, as learning, or as an interaction of genes and environment) and the way they react to aggressive students’ behaviours.

Over 150 teachers from urban secondary schools (gimnazjum) took part in the research. The way the respondents understood human nature and development was determined with the use of a questionnaire based on two other diagnostic tools used in research on educational ideologies (Konarzewski 1990) and on convictions concerning the origins of human nature (Zmuda-Trzebiatowska 2008). The results obtained on scales that correspond with three ways teachers understand human nature and development (growing, learning or interaction of genes and environment) were compared with the allocation of teachers’ interventions in case of aggressive students’ behaviours.
