Justification write-up:  Relevancy


The relationship between a student and the teacher is important as it affects our environment and our education. Of course, years of education in school, each student will definitely have various factors from other students that affect . Having a good relationship with a teacher is important thus the teacher can understand and help students out more. This is a good topic to research on as this helps to find out more and understand each other better, improving academic results for students. A positive relationship can vary to set a learning experience encouraging the students to learn, having them in active participation. A teacher and student who have good communication skill between one another and respect for each other will establish a positive relationship in the classroom.Teachers who demonstrate respect towards their students, will have active learners in their classroom.

Improving students' relationships with teachers has important, positive and long-lasting implications for students' academic and social development. Solely improving students' relationships with their teachers will not produce gains in achievement in exams . However, those students who have close, positive and supportive relationships with their teachers will attain higher levels of achievement than those students with more conflictual relationships. If a student feels a personal connection to a teacher, experiences frequent communication with a teacher, and receives more guidance and praise than criticism from the teacher, then the student is likely to become more trustful of that teacher, show more engagement in the academic content presented, display better classroom behavior, and achieve at higher levels academically. Positive teacher-student relationships draw students into the process of learning and promote their desire to learn

Methodology, feasibility and manageability:


Our method of doing this report is by interviewing students and teachers from S1-03 as they are the target audience of this project, how they feel about the class’ academics results and what lacks regarding the relationship.


Procedures and Data analysis:


We are going to gather the data by interviewing students and teachers from s1-03 about their views on this topic, asking them some of the essential questions. Data will be collated and presented in a short video. To analyse the data, we will share our opinions/views and what the majority of students and teachers think about the relationship between each other, affecting the class’ academic results.

Task 2 Research: Video Draft Proposal


As we are students ourselves, we can easily portray the students perspective when making this video. So in this video, i would focus more on the teachers' side than the students' side. This way students will reflect on what they have done in the past to their teachers.

Our research aims to let everyone have a better understanding on how important student to teacher relationship is. So with the stated method above, we can let students relate to their daily lives and let them have a better understanding on what are they doing.


Thanks,
Desmond
