The Vietnam War: Attitudinal dispositions, professional assessments, and content coverage among Indiana high school United States history teachers
This study examined the potential relationship between Indiana high school United States history teachers' attitudes, reported classroom coverage, professional assessments, and reported sources of information pertaining to the Vietnam War and participants' generational identification. Ninety-eight teachers were surveyed and categorized according to generation. No statistically significant differences were found across generations with regard to teachers' attitudes, reported coverage, or professional assessments. Statistically significant differences were found with regard to teachers' reported sources of information informing their views of the Vietnam War. Members of the Baby Boom generation were statistically significantly more likely to report personal experience as an informing source. Baby Boomers were also statistically significantly less likely to report undergraduate education as an informing source.
