Effects of Early Childhood Multicultural Experiences on Black Preschool Children's Attitudes Toward Themselves and Whites.
Blackwell, Jacqueline; And Others
This study examines the effects of social studies experiences on the attitudes of young black children towards themselves and whites. Subjects were 54 children, 4 years of age, representing a low socioeconomic population. The children were divided into three groups of 18 each. Group 1 read and discussed selected multi-ethnic social studies materials. Group 2 read and discussed these selections and received field-trip experiences based upon these readings. Group 3 received traditional preschool experiences. All groups received a 20-item attitude pretest and posttest. IQ did not differ significantly between groups. Based upon the results of Hartley's F test, a one-way analysis of covariance showed significant differences among treatment groups. Using a two sample t-test, the results of the study indicated that Groups 1 and 3 and 2 and 3 differed significantly in attitude. No significant differences were found in attitude change between Groups 1 and 2. (Author/SB)
