The Relationship between Attitude toward Science with Enrollment in a 4x4 Block Schedule.
Spellman, James E.; Oliver, J. Steve
This study examines the relationships between classroom environment and affective learning outcomes over time. Focus is placed on the investigation of the correlation between environmental variables and attitude toward science, and the change in attitude toward science and other classroom environment attitudes by students enrolled in block scheduled science courses. A group of rural high school students participated in this investigation that used an instrument developed by Simpson and Troost to measure attitudes toward science and other variables associated with school science by middle and high school students. Differences between grade levels and gender were found in this study. (KHR)
