Use of the Semantic Differential in Teaching about Minority Group Families.
Burkett, Linda Padou
A college class on the family relationship patterns of some American minority groups was structured to foster attitude change as well as acquisition of information. As a teaching tool, a semantic differential was developed and administered before and after the course. In this particular class, many students found their views of Black and Chicano family life had shifted. Students' views of certain aspects of family life in other cultures also became more positive. Interpersonal contact with speakers and students from other cultural groups is suggested to prompt revision of stereotypic views of the family style of various cultural groups. (Author)
