An Evaluation of the Experimental Anthropology Program at Magee Secondary School During the Spring Semester of 1973.
Moodie, Allan G.; And Others
This study was performed to examine the effectiveness of an experimental anthropology program conducted in a secondary school. A semantic differential scale consisting of ten pairs of bipolar adjectives was administered in pre- and post-test sessions to anthropology students to measure their attitudes toward the following concepts: Culture, Archeology, Indians, Ethnic Backgrounds, Racial Origins, and Organization of Society. Although the differences between pre- and post-test scores were not statistically significant, it is noted that during the post-test session one one-half of the respondents indicated that their attitudes toward persons of other races and cultural backgrounds had become more tolerant and respectful. The findings indicate that the anthropology program appears to be a worthwhile program in fulfilling its objectives and meeting the needs of the students. A summary of student responses to a questionnaire and the scale for measuring students' attitudes are contained in the document. (Author/BB)
