Hello, I wonder if you can help with some research. I'm currently working towards my masters dissertation which is looking at teacher connectedness and its impact on the wellbeing of Year 11 students during GCSE year. If you have a few minutes and are happy to answer the following questions, I would be really grateful. 1. What do you understand by the term 'teacher connectedness'? 2. Is there a need for good teacher connectedness during Year 11? Why/Why not? 3. How would you describe the state of student connectedness with teachers during Year 11? 4. Do Appraisal Targets and Value-Added impact on the quality of teacher connectedness during GCSE year? How? 5. Do you have any further thoughts about 'teacher connectedness'? Everything you say will be treated confidentially within my dissertation and I will not use any names/usernames. Thank you for your time and interest and feel free to ask me any questions.
