Development of Intercultural Competence among US American Teachers: Professional Development Factors that Enhance Competence
DeJaeghere, Joan G.; Zhang, Yongling
Intercultural Education, v19 n3 p255-268 Jun 2008
The increasing diversity of the student age population in the USA calls for increased cultural competence on behalf of educators to effectively teach students. This article reports on a study of a suburban school district's initiatives that utilized the Development Model of Intercultural Sensitivity, the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) as a baseline measurement tool, and subsequent professional development for teachers, to promote the development of intercultural competence. ANOVA and regression analysis models were used to determine the variables that affect teachers' perceived intercultural competence after their participation in professional development. (Contains 4 tables and 5 notes.)
