Teaching Teachers to Teach the Disadvantaged; Study of Attitude Change.
Levan, Frederick D.
Attitude Change Title I (ACT I) was an effectiveness evaluation to determine what changes in semantic differential meaning accompanied Title I inservice teacher training, what differences in semantic differential meaning existed between teachers who did and did not have Title I training, and what relationships existed between personality characteristics and changes in attitude accompanying Title I training. The evaluation's primary population consisted of teachers of the disadvantaged (in Arizona, California, Nevada, and New Mexico) who had volunteered for Title I training during the 1966-67 school year; the three adjunct populations were teachers who had volunteered for Title I training during the 1965-66 school year, instructional leaders of 1966-67 inservice projects, and school district consultants who had had Title I training during the 1966-67 school year. Semantic differential was used to measure the evaluative, potency, and activity dimensions of meaning; one projective and four nonprojective instruments were correlate measures. F and t tests were applied to the data. It was found that Title I training of teachers during the 1966-67 school year did effect attitudinal differences, there were no attitudinal differences between teachers who had had Title I training in 1965-66 and those who had had training, and Title I training of consultants was not accompanied by attitudinal change.
