A Course on Gender Equity in Education: Does It Affect Gender Role Attitudes of Preservice Teachers?
Erden, Feyza Tantekin
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v25 n3 p409-414 Apr 2009
The aim of this study is to investigate if a semester-long course on gender equity in education has an impact on the attitudes of preservice teachers toward gender roles. To this end, a pretest-posttest analysis is carried out in a state university in Ankara, Turkey, employing a sample of 133 preservice teachers; 33 of whom had taken the course and 100 of whom had not. The results reveal that the course has a substantial impact on the attitudes of the preservice teachers. Indeed, the attitudes of the teacher candidates taking the course change considerably at the end of the semester, developing more favorable attitudes toward gender issues. (Contains 6 tables and 1 figure.)
