Preservice Teachers' Attitudes and Beliefs about Democratic Classroom Practice: Influences on Intentions for Pedagogical Integration
Pryor, Caroline R.; Pryor, Brandt W.
Current Issues in Education, v8 n6 2005
This study investigated preservice teachers' intentions to integrate democratic practice into their teaching and the influence of attitudes and beliefs on intentions. Participants were 76 undergraduates from 3 social studies methods classes. A theory of reasoned action (Fishbein & Ajzen, 1975) guided instrument development. Intention was determined solely by attitude, and attitude by two beliefs about outcomes of democratic practice. Pretest to posttest changes on knowledge of how to integrate democratic practice corresponded to levels of course implementation. Program implications are found in mpeg video integrated into text (Olivero, John, & Sutherland, 2004) and in "Talking Tables." (Contains 4 tables and 1 footnote.)
