Pre-Service Teacher Intercultural Sensitivity Assessment as a Basis for Addressing Multiculturalism
Spinthourakis, J. A.; Karatzia-Stavlioti, E.; Roussakis, Y.
Intercultural Education, v20 n3 p267-276 Jun 2009
The aim of the present study was to assess the cultural sensitivity of a sample of Greek University Elementary education students using an adjusted version of Chen and Starosta's Intercultural Sensitivity Scale, which is based on Bennett's Inventory on Intercultural Sensitivity. Results show that Greek student intercultural sensitivity is already high, but that they feel they are not well enough prepared by their training for future educational work that might demand intercultural sensitivity. (Contains 1 figure, 8 tables, and 1 note.)
