Teacher Multicultural Attitudes: Intern/Teaching Fellows in New York City
Cicchelli, Terry; Cho, Su-Je
Education and Urban Society, v39 n3 p370-381 2007
Schools in New York City are continually pressed to meet the demands of an ever-increasing multicultural population, compounded by the pressures exerted by the No Child Left Behind legislation and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. Indicated is a need for multicultural understandings within teacher education programs, emphasizing teacher attitudes. The Teacher Multicultural Attitude Survey, a 20-item inventory, was administered to 61 intern/teaching fellows in a 39-credit initial teacher education program infused with multicultural content and urban field experiences. Using a single-group, pre-post design, significant differences at p less than 0.004 were found for White and culturally diverse intern/teaching fellows. For White intern/teaching fellows only (n = 41), significant differences were noted at p less than 0.0001. For culturally diverse intern/teaching fellows only (n = 20), no significant differences were noted. Empirical data informed the differential value of the multicultural content infused within Fordham University's Intern/Teaching Fellows Teacher Education Program. (Contains 1 table.)
