The Relationship Between Teachers' Sex Role Attitudes and Stereotypic Reinforcement of Student Behaviors.
Weber, Margaret B.; And Others
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between stereotypic sex role attitudes of classroom teachers and stereotypic reinforcement behaviors towards students. Thirty-three white female preservice and inservice elementary and secondary teachers participated in this study. A projective attitude instrument, written classroom simulation, behavior observations, and questionnaires were used in this study. The results indicate that stereotypic sex-role attitudes are not related to stereotypic sex role behaviors, nor are the relationships between attitudes and behaviors consistent across high and low stereotypic feminine teachers. Further, stereotypic sex-role attitudes are not related to grade-level specialty. (Authors)
