Instrument Development for Measuring Teachers' Attitudes and Comfort in Teaching Human Sexuality
Perez, Miguel A.; Luquis, Raffy; Allison, Laura
American Journal of Health Education, v35 n1 p24-29 Jan-Feb 2004
School based sexuality education remains a hotly debated topic in the United States. Two key areas of this debate focus on teacher preparation to instruct sexuality education and teachers' attitudes and comfort with the subject matter. This article describes the development and psychometric testing of the Teachers' Attitude and Comfort Scale. This simple-to-use instrument has acceptable construct validity and internal consistency on five domains including teacher's concern, comfort, and attitude toward sexuality. (Contains 3 tables.)
