Gender, Ethnicity, and Grade Level as Predictors of Middle School Students' Attitudes toward Science.
Weinburgh, Molly H.
This paper indicates the increasing interest and importance of research on the effects of attitudes toward learning, and examines the differences in attitudes by gender, ethnicity, and grade level among middle school students toward science. It was concluded that sex differences provide a constant influence on attitudes toward science, and that ethnicity affects student choices in the courses of biology, chemistry, and physics. The awareness of teachers about their students' attitudes toward science can help them in developing programs and curriculum designs to better aid these students. (Contains 22 references.) (YDS)
