Teachers’ Characteristics and their Conflict Management Styles in the Classroom

Maria Carmela S. Ong



This study investigated the relationship between the teachers’ demographic variables (age and years of teaching) and the conflict management styles (CMS) that they use in helping their students resolve peer conflicts. Thirty-one teachers were purposively selected to be the subject of this research. Data were collected through the instrument called the Conflict Resolution Ideology and Practice Questionnaire (CRIPQ) to identify the conflict management styles of the participants. Using correlational design, results from the quantitative responses were examined by utilizing Pearson Correlation Coefficient. Results showed no significant correlation between the teachers’ age and CMS, and their years of teaching and CMS.
