dc.description.abstractThis research explores relationships in schools, specifically interactions between teachers and students. Initially, the research examined an overview of teacher-student relationships and factors that contribute to these interactions. This overview included both teacher and student perceptions and personal characteristics and then examined the effects of teacher-student relationships on education and how teacher and student behaviors affect educational outcomes. The overview of the research literature concluded with how to develop positive relationships. Teacher expectations, attitude, familiarity, and communication all play a role in cultivating relationships in the classroom environment. The purpose of the research was to determine if improving relationships between teachers and students would decrease off-task behaviors during class.The intervention involved four weeks of initiatives focused on developing improved teacher-student relationships. The mean number of off-task behaviors per student during the weighted baseline period (Mean = 44.33, SD = 14.89) was significantly higher than the mean number of off-task behaviors during the intervention period (Mean = 31.08, SD = 9.68) [t(11) = 5.90, p < .001]. As the data was significant, the null hypothesis was rejected.en_US
