The Relationship Between Teachers' Stereotypic Sex Role Attitudes and Related Behaviors Toward Students.
Weber, Margaret B.
The Vance Richards Verbal Fluency Test was utilized to study the sex role attitudes of 33 female students enrolled in either undergraduate or graduate teacher education programs. A specially developed classroom simulation instrument and direct classroom observations were also used in an attempt to determine the degree to which teachers' attitudes towards sex roles affect the attitudes of their students. Results suggest that teachers' stereotypic sex role attitudes may not be related to actual in-class behavior, that the relationships between attitudes and behaviors are not consistent across high and low stereotypic groups, and that sex role attitudes do not appear to be related to grade level specialty.
