Abstract

Teachers can be the most important factor to conduct teaching thinking. This study attempts to investigate the factors influencing teachers’ perceptions towards teaching thinking. Data were collected from 102 school teachers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Principle Components Analysis (PCA) revealed three factors: the sense of efficacy, value of teaching thinking, and structure of learning. This study confirmed that teachers perceived certain internal context factors, and revealed that external context factors also have an impact on their teaching thinking.

Keywords:  influencing factors, perception, teaching thinking, case study, Principle Component Analysis (PCA)
