Teacher Student Relationships

-Overview-

The engagement of students in learning activities is strongly influenced by their relationships with teachers. Higher engagement levels further fuel improvement in academic performance.

Digital natives, in particular, give a lot of weightage to relationships before they engage in any activity or person.

Research indicates that frequency of positive interactions, objective observations, and awareness are the three critical requirements for building strong teacher-student relationships.
