ABSTRACT

In this study, it was investigated into if communication skills of classroom teachers working in the first stage of elementary education significantly differed according to such variables as gender, service length, school of graduation. The data were obtained via using the scale for "Teachers' Communication Skills" developed by Canan Çetinkanat. Moreover, a "Personal Information Form" including questions about gender, service length and school of graduation was prepared and administered by the researchers. The sample of the study included a total of 77 elementary school teachers selected via an appropriate sampling method from among those who were working in the first stage of 5 different elementary schools in the provincial center of Bursa. The Cronbach's Alpha reliability coefficient obtained as a result of the administration was r= 0, 80. As a result of the study, it was found that the classroom teachers' communication skills did not differ significantly according to the variables of gender and service length, but they differed according to the variable of school of graduation.
