Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine, through a collection of data, whether or not a positive student-teacher relationship motivates a student to perform better. The purpose is to determine, to what degree, does a teachers’ approachability affect students’ performance in a mainstream Language Arts class. The data was gathered from 35 students and one Language Arts teacher. The methods used in this study were surveys and semi-structured interviews. I am performing this research to benefit future education majors as well as present teachers, on their approach to teaching and creating relationships with their students.
