+ Teacher Effectiveness

"For example, empathetic teachers should be more effective in inspiring students to change poor work habits and to learn than non-empathetic teachers, because they are able to view the world from the students’ perspectives and hence more likely to connect with them. Findings from Aspy, Roebuck, and Aspy (1984) research appear to support that  hypothesis as they found that teacher empathy was positively correlated with student attendance and student achievement on tests.  (MING LAM + 2011)*
