ABSTRACT

The data of this study, that aims to develop an effective and reliable measuring instrument and to determine the relation between various variables and teachers practicing their profession at elementary schools, are obtained through the contribution of class and subject area teachers who worked during the school year of 2011-2012 in elementary schools located in Hakkari city center. As a result of the study, it is revealed that elementary school teachers, in general, adopt the approach of medium-level control. It is one of the results obtained from the study that female teachers do not establish a strict control over their students and have the tendency to share the responsibility of educational activities with them. As elementary school teachers' practices were analyzed regarding the control approaches they adopted, the results indicate that visual arts teachers along with foreign language teachers and classroom teachers demonstrate an approach of lower control-level in their classes.
