Summary

The aim of the study is to investigate teacher's behavioral and psychophysiological mechanisms which will have an effect on the quality of teacher-child interactions. We will follow longitudinally 50 classrooms at grade 1.The quality of video recorded teacher-child interactions will be assessed using the CLASS and ECCOM. Teacher gaze behavior will be measured by SMI eye-tracking device. Stress responses will be measured through salivary cortisol (a total of 18 times from teachers). Instrumentation includes also teacher questionnaires to teachers (e.g. perceived stress, exhaustion, self-efficacy beliefs, and executive functioning). Results will inform teacher training and school development regarding teacher stress and well-being, coping and attention, and their associations to classroom interaction quality.
