Item description for Pygmalion in the Classroom: Teacher Expectation and Pupils' Intellectual Development by Robert Rosenthal & Lenore Jacobson...

When first published in 1968 (later updated in 1992) this book was received with almost universal acclaim for its ground breaking research. The "Pygmalion phenomenom" is the self-fulfilling prophecy embedded in teachers expectations. Simply put, when teachers expect students to do well and show intellectual growth, they do, but when teachers do not have such expectations, performance and growth are not as encouraged and may in fact be discouraged in a number of ways. A classic volume available once again.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pygmalion in the Classroom: Teacher Expectation and Pupils' Intellectual Development?

Dangerous Science  May 10, 2007
While on the surface Pygmalion appears to be a solid experiment, what lies beneath is a train wreck of creative data and stretched conclusions. I took a class which spent several weeks examining the data and methods used by Rosenthal and Jacobson, and the lengths they went to in order bolster their conclusion are laughable. Their randomization process was never clear, mortality was a very serious issue, and the TOGA test was administered to students below the minimum recommended age requirement (if you look at the data, many kids score zero on the test, indicating they didn't even do it). They gather much of their reported gains from "wonder kids" who gain ~70 IQ points during the duration of the experiment, which is absolutely ludicrous. I could go on and on, but hopefully you will do more than just take the book at face value.
A "must-read" for school administrators  Jul 20, 2003
First published in 1968, updated in 1992, Pygmalion In The Classroom: Teacher Expectation And Pupils' Intellectual Development is the collaborative effort of Robert Rosentha and Lenore Jacobson to take a close look at the "Pygmalion phenomenon", that is, the self-fulfilling prophecy in teachers' expectations of their students. Closely looking at how prejudices can shape a child's own self-esteem and learning environment, Pygmalion In The Classroom is a "must-read" for school administrators, classroom teachers, home schoolers, and anyone else who is keenly interested in the education of future generations.
