A Study of the Attitudes of Prospective Elementary School Teachers Toward Biological Science.
Snitgen, Donald Albert
This research study was conducted to assess the effect of a biological science course, taught by lecture and auto-tutorial technique, on the prospective elementary science teachers' attitudes toward biological science. The investigator constructed the Biological Science Attitude Scale and established its reliability and validity. The subjects consisted of experimental groups comprised of elementary education majors enrolled in a biological science course as against control elementary education majors enrolled in a mathematics course. The analysis of data showed that this particular course in biology did not decrease the attitudes of students in the course. Their attitudes were not significantly increased either. Students entered the course with positive attitudes and maintained them throughout. (Author/PS)
