Classroom Teachers' Cognitive Fictions on the Concept of Value

  • General Medicine

This study investigated classroom teachers’ cognitive fictions on the concept of value. The sample consisted of 40 primary school classroom teachers using purposive sampling. The study adopted a qualitative phenomenological research design. Data were collected using a Repertory Grid Interview Questionnaire. The data were analyzed using content analysis. Four hundred cognitive fictions were developed and categorized into ten fundamental values theorized by Schwartz. The cognitive fictions were addressed based on participants’ gender and training in values education. As a result classroom teachers considered the value groups ‘‘achievement’’, ‘‘conformity’’, ‘‘self-direction’’ the most important.
