Abstract


CONTRIBUTION OF SAC TEACHERS' THINKING STYLES TO PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS

The aim of the study is to determine the relationship between the thinking styles and problem solving skills of teachers who work in Science and Art Centers (SAC) that provide education to gifted students. Additionally, to reveal the contribution of teachers' thinking styles to problem solving skills. Correlational survey model was used in the research. The research population in Turkey is creating BİLSEM teachers. 234 (129 female, 105 male) SAC teachers were reached through convenience sampling. In order to determine the thinking styles of SAC teachers, the Thinking Styles Scale developed by Sternberg and Wagner (1992) and adapted to Turkish by Bulus (2006) was used. In order to determine problem solving skills, the Problem Solving Inventory developed by Heppner & Petersen (1982) and adapted into Turkish by Şahin, Şahin & Heppner (1993) was applied. In the correlation analysis made to determine the relationship between teachers' thinking styles and problem solving skills, generally positive relationships were found between variables. The Statistical calculations of the study were made using the SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) package program. It has been observed that SAC teachers prefer more conservative, liberal, hierarchical, global, anarchic and internal thinking styles while solving problems. It is seen that the relationships between sub-dimensions are also positive. Global (r = .161, p <.05) and conservative (r = .427, p <.01) thinking styles with Confidence in Problem Solving Ability subscale score; With Approach Avoidance subscale score, monarchic (r = .191, p <.01), global (r = .395, p <.01), internal (r = .291, p <.01) and conservative (r =. 433, p <.01) thinking styles; There was a statistically significant difference between the Personal Control subscale score and global (r = .239, p <.01), internal (r = .203, p <.01) and Conservative (r = .367, p <.01) thinking styles. It has been observed that there is a relationship. These findings show that there is a statistically significant relationship between teachers' problem solving skills and their thinking styles.
