Abstract

This research focuses on students’ (N=25) views about science teacher authority, how it forms and how it can be developed. This research is based on hermeneutic phenomenological approach. A research questionnaire was employed to collect the data including both closed and open questions. The analysis of the collected data employed both statistical as well grounded theory approaches. Based on the research data acquired, the students’ view that teacher’s authority is formed in a collaborative relationship, where the character of the teacher, content knowledge, mastering of group dynamics and status of the teacher are important. Also, in order to develop authority in the classroom, development of context-based skills and teacher personality are favoured. Students appreciate a teacher as an authority when the teacher shows skills in the topic taught, is one who keeps order in the class and still appears nice towards the students.
