Changing the Racial Attitudes of Children: The Effects of an Activity Group Program in New York City Schools. Praeger Special Studies in U.S. Economic and Social Development.
Trubowitz, Julius
This book describes and evaluates an experiment to overcome fear and misunderstanding between races. The subjects were from four fourth grade and four fifth grade classes from two New York City schools, one predominantly white and the other predominantly Black. The experiment consisted of three full-day educational field trips. By controlling the assignment of pupil partners, variations in interracial contact were obtained. Three attitude tests were used to measure the racial attitudes of the pupils in this study: the Attitude Scale, the Social Distance Scale, and the Projective Picture Test. Two rating sheets were designed to determine the pupils' perceptions of the trip experience. Tables of findings and questionnaire forms are included. (KG)
