Student Teachers’ Impact on their Basic Education Students’ Cognitive, Affective and Social Development

Rufina C. Rosaroso | Zosima A. Pañares



The study examined the student teachers’ influence on the cognitive, affective and social development of the basic education students. The findings suggested that the presence of student teachers in the classroom had greater impact on the students’ affective and social dimensions rather than their cognitive development even with the learning they had. Student teachers from TEIs with a larger population were perceived by their students to be more sociable and affectionate than those from TEIs with fewer student teachers. But the latter have a better attitude towards teaching and better workplace interactions.
