Abstract:The objectives of this study were to have social studies undergraduates of the University of Botswana rank some given attributes of the effective teacher in order of importance, give reasons for that ranking and suggest ways of further improving the effective teacher. It was found that knowledge of the subject matter was the most important attribute of the effective teacher, while punctuality in the classroom was the least important. Various reasons were given by the undergraduates for ranking the attributes of the effective teacher the way they did. Some useful suggestions were made by the undergraduates on how the effective teacher can be further improved. In conclusion, the study recommended the implementation of some of the suggestions of the respondents. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
