Teachers' Attitudes toward Change and Subsequent Improvements in Classroom Teaching.
Sparks, Georgea Mohlman
Journal of Educational Psychology, v80 n1 p111-17 Mar 1988
The relationship between teachers' attitudes toward practices presented in inservice training and their subsequent use was investigated using 19 junior high school teachers attending workshops with pre-/post-training assessments. Teachers' philosophical acceptance of the practices helped predict their use. Improved teachers were more likely to experiment in their classrooms. (SLD)
