A Follow-Up Study of the Participants from the Multi-Cultural Teacher Training Institute.
Provost, Richard
This study determined if there were any significant difference in attitudes toward self, towards others, and towards teaching between a group of new teachers who had been exposed to sensitivity training and a group who had not been exposed and also checked differences between pretest, posttest, and follow-up scores. The experimental group of 41 teachers and the control group of 50 were divided into the following groups: total, secondary, elementary, white, black, and Mexican-American. The four instruments used were the Teaching Evaluation Record, Minnesota Teacher Attitude Inventory, Personal Orientation Inventory, and the Philosophies of Human Nature-Scale. Findings showed that the experimental secondary group was significantly better than the control group. The total and elementary experimental group were significantly different from the control groups on the Personal Orientation Inventory for the factor inner-directed, existentiality, and capacity for intimate contact. The factors for inner-directed, synergy, acceptance of aggression, capacity for intimate contact, and self actualization were almost consistently significant. There appeared to be a hierarchy of attitudes with change occurring first in attitudes about self and then in attitudes towards teaching. (MBM)
