Abstract


EXAMINING STUDENTS’ PERCEPTIONS OF AN EFFECTIVE ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHER THROUGH A CONSTRUCTIVIST APPROACH
The phenomenon of effective language teacher has become among the most controversial topics because of the interpretational variations of the word “effective” with respect to particular contexts as well as scholars. It used to be acknowledged as simply ensuring learners’ achievement or as having a good command of the target language. However, Çelik, Arıkan, and Caner (2013) suggest that students now hold different perceptions and expectations with respect to the characteristics of an effective foreign language teacher. Based on this assumption, the present study aims to explore the personal theories of two classmates at two extremes in terms of their achievement, participation, and attendance to classes on effective English language teacher. Data have been collected through Repertory Grid Technique (Rep-Grid) and with a follow-up interview in order to clarify the subjects’ perceptions. Personal theories of the subjects demonstrate that the successful student characterizes an effective English teacher as someone having predominantly pedagogical content knowledge whereas the unsuccessful student is more concerned with classroom behavior of teachers.
