MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between students’ and parents’ attitudes regarding the Tennessee state standards on the ancient Islamic world. The sample came from 15 middle school students from a local scout troop and their parents/guardians. The students were taught a unit covering the ancient Islamic world. Data were collected using an attitude survey which was administered to students and their parents or guardians. The students’ attitudes and their parents’/guardians’ were correlated using Pearson Product Moment Correlation. The results indicated no significant relationship between students’ and their parents’/guardians’ attitude towards Tennessee state standards on the ancient Islamic world. Similarly, there was no significant difference in attitudes between male and female student respondents. The results suggest that the more the students and parents/guardians are exposed to the ancient Islamic world, the less biased they are in their attitudes.
