Ige, Olugbenga Adedayo
International Journal of Instruction, v10 n4 p307-324 Oct 2017
This study explored the causative influence of thinking dispositions on secondary school students' civic attitudes in school ecologies. 167 students from eight selected secondary schools in northern and southern Nigeria responded to the Senior Students' Thinking Dispositions Questionnaire (SSTDQ), and Students' Attitude to Civic Education Scale (SACES). Results of the stepwise linear regression model declared that absolutism, superstition, and dogmatism were the potent predictors that are strongly connected to students' civic attitudes. The study has inferences for teachers' development viz a viz teaching students' civic attitudes from inside out (critical teaching that uses social tools as yardstick) in school ecologies.
