Hanifi ŞEKERCİ [1] , M. Cihangir DOĞAN [2]


This study aims to analyze prospective primary school teachers’ levels of intercultural sensitivity in Turkey according to the variables of national cultural differences and experiencing the differences at national level socially. Causal-comparative research model and Simple random sampling method were used in the study. 387 undergraduate students attending the primary School Teaching Departments of Ziya Gökalp Faculty of Education of Dicle University and Atatürk Educational Faculty of Marmara University were included in this research. The data was collected by the Intercultural Sensitivity Scale (ISS). Descriptive statistics were used in the analysis of the data independent sample t-test and one-way ANOVA. As a result, it was found that prospective primary school teachers are at satisfactory levels in terms of intercultural sensitivity. Additionally, intercultural sensitivity levels of prospective primary school teachers using two or more languages in communication with their family members or relatives were significantly higher than those using one language.

Bu çalışmada sınıf öğretimeni adaylarının kültürler arası duyarlılık düzeylerinin ulusal kültürel farklılıklar ve bu farklılıkları ulusal düzeyde deneyimleme değişkenlerine göre incelemek amaçlanmaktadır. Araştırmada nedensel karşılaştırma araştırma modeli ile basit rasgele örneklem tekniği kullanılmıştır. Araştırmaya Dicle Üniversitesi Ziya Gökalp Eğitim Fakültesi ile Marmara Üniversitesi Atatürk Eğitim Fakültesinde öğrenim gören 387 sınıf öğretmeni adayı katılmıştır. Çalışmada veriler kültürler arası duyarlılık ölçeği ile toplanmıştır. Verilerin analizinde bağımsız gruplar t- testi ve one-way anova testleri kullanılmıştır. Araştırma bulgularına göre sınıf öğretmeni adaylarının kültürler arası duyarlılık seviyesi yeterli düzeydedir. Bunun yanında akrabaları veya aile üyeleri ile iletişiminde iki veya daha fazla dil kullanan sınıf öğretmeni adaylarının kültürler arası duyarlılık düzeyi tek dil kullanalara göre anlamlı olarak daha yüksektir.
