Griffin, Patrick; Woods, Kerry; Dulhunty, Mark
Journal of Research in International Education, v5 n1 p83-103 2006
This study aimed to measure Australian students' attitudes to learning about Asia, and to identify contextual factors related to development of positive attitudes. Participants were 3359 Year 5 and 3773 Year 8 students, and 107 Year 5 and 114 Year 8 teachers. For most students, there was keen interest in learning about Asia, but there were clear relationships between attitudes and student year and gender. Information provided by this study could prove of value to educators wishing to improve students', and especially boys', interest in learning. (Contains 8 figures and 2 tables.)
