Qualitative and Quantitative Research on the Knowledge of Global Issues, International Attitudes, and Skills of Negotiation among Secondary School Students.
Torney-Purta, Judith
For decades, there has been considerable interest in understanding how attitudes toward other nations and cultures are formed and how people differ in their knowledge and attitudes toward global issues. However, the available research on the topic is sparse and disconnected. This paper suggests a model for looking at the research and presents results from two projects which combine qualitative and quantitative measures to examine knowledge of global issues, international attitudes, and skills of negotiation among secondary school students. The model centers on the young person as an individual and pays special attention to the influences of school and family. These three units are shown within a larger cultural/community context which may be thought of as setting the boundaries within which the family and the school exert their influences. (APG)
