Summary

Analyzed were the effectiveness of three types of attitude change techniques for changing the attitude of prospective elementary school teachers toward science. A sample of 219 prospective elementary teachers was administered a pretest to measure selected aspects of attitudes toward science. The subjects were assigned to one of four treatment groups which were stratified according to pretest attitude scores. A persuasive communication was administered to the three treatment groups three and one-half weeks after the pretest. The control group received an innocuous communication and the post-test; one treatment group received persuasive communication and the post-test; the other two treatment groups received the persuasive communication. Of the latter two groups, one role played a proponent of the scientific attitude while the other observed the role playing. Results indicated that the combined treatment groups resulted in a much higher (p<.001) mean science attitude score than did the control group; however, the combined role playing experience was no more effective than only reading the persuasive communication, reading the communication and role playing, and reading the communication and role playing the point of view of the communication.
