Understanding the Effects of Cognitive Dissonance during Interpretation: Implications for "Hands-On" Programming.
Morgan, Mark
Legacy, v7 n5 p24-27 Sep-Oct 1996
Describes a field experiment that was designed to test the effects of three different interpretive programs on students' attitudes toward live, nonpoisonous snakes. One of the treatments measured the effectiveness of using "hands-on" interpretive techniques. Direct contact with snakes improved students' attitudes but only slightly. Females' negative attitudes toward snakes decreased after touching the reptiles. (AIM)
