Answer to #1

The behaviors ascribed to specific teachers should be consistent with the descriptions of parenting styles presented in the textbook. Students are likely to report that they were more motivated to do their best work in the classroom of authoritative teachers, while they resented authoritarian teachers and did just enough to get by. Students often remark that they liked their permissive teachers, but did not respect them. Uninvolved teachers are rarely motivating.
