Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

There has been a substantial amount of research indicating that the major source of a student's motives for achievement, as well as his or her personality structure, is the home in which he or she grows up (Gordon, 1977). The behavior and attitudes of parents, as well as the nature of the physical setting and materials provided, have a direct impact on the child's behavior before and during the school years. The school is another source of a child's intellectual and personality development. The nature of the curriculum, the mode of teacher behavior, and the classroom ecology all influence not only immediate behavior, but also patterns of behavior for the future (Revicki et al., 1979) .
