Attitude and Value Change in Minority Teacher-Trainees in an Intensive Teacher-Training Program.
Wolkon, Kenneth A.; Clarke, Cleveland O.
This study describes an intensive 10-week teacher training program for minority group college graduates prior to teaching in the public schools. The Personal Orientation Inventory and the Minnesota Teacher Attitude Inventory were used as pre- and posttraining measures to assess attitudes and value change over the duration of the training program. The authors conclude that the training program appears to have changed the attitudes and values of the college graduates into ones more congruent with good teaching and self-actualization. Also the program seems to have been more successful with those trainees going into secondary rather than elementary education. (An eight-item bibliography and seven tables are included.) (PD)
