Review

The study aimed at revealing the relation between Corona virus pandemic psychological effect and future anxiety among teachers considering some variables (i.e., gender, social status, and school type). To achieve the aims of the study, the Impact of Event Scale-Revised IES-R scale and the future anxiety scale were utilized, after examining their validity and reliability. The sample consisted of 254 teachers from public and private schools in Irbid.  The results show that there are statistically significant differences in the means of corona virus pandemic psychological effect scale due to the type of school; private school teachers were more affected by the pandemic than public school teachers. Whereas the results indicate that there are no statistically significant differences due to gender and social status. On the other hand, the results reveal that there are statistically significant differences in the means of future anxiety scale due to gender, school type, and social status. The results also show that there is a statistical positive relationship between corona virus pandemic psychological effect and future anxiety.
