A Cross-Cultural Content Analysis of Nez Perce Tribal Legends and Selected Anglo-American Children's Stories for Value-Attitude Factors of Achievement Motivation.
Jose, Cecil T.
The study examines the nature of cross-cultural differences in value-attitude factors of achievement motivation between the Anglo American and Amerindian. Based on other research findings that high achievement motivation tends to correlate with high economic development, the rationale for this study is the documented need for optimal economic development on Amerindian reservations. The research methodology involves a comparative content analysis of published Nez Perce tribal legends and selected Anglo American children's stories. The significance of this study for Amerindian education lies in the potential of developing curricular models and instructional strategies for inducing high Amerindian achievement motivation. Results are not currently available. (Author/MH)
