Student Attitudes toward Educational Foundations Studies.
Birkel, Lane F.
This study was designed to determine the value that students place on selected aspects of the educational foundations studies. Responses were gathered from 652 undergraduate secondary teacher education students with a rating scale instrument developed for the study. Results indicate a favorable response toward the foundations studies in general. Sociological aspects were valued most highly, followed closely by philosophic aspects. Historical aspects received low evaluations. Sex of student was found to be a significant variable, but major and student teaching experience were not. In conclusion, students view foundational studies as valuable to their professional preparation. (Author)
