Factors Influencing Attitudes of Florida Teachers toward Modern Foreign Language Teaching Methodology.
Pinder, William Whitmore
This doctoral dissertation identifies certain factors which influence the attitudes of Florida modern language teachers toward contemporary teaching methodology. The study begins with a philosophical and historical view of methods of teaching modern foreign languages. Data, collected from 10 percent of the modern foreign language teachers in secondary schools in Florida by means of a personal questionnaire and an attitudinal scale related to foreign language teaching methods, are analyzed. Five salient factors which evolved from the scale are correlated with characteristics in the respondents' personal and professional backgrounds. Conclusions indicate that teacher attitudes toward modern foreign language teaching methodology are not significantly related to sex, age, foreign language teaching experience, academic degree, how the second language was learned, experience with the language laboratory, or whether the teacher has had training in special foreign language workshops and programs.
