Abstract

Cultural sensitivity is a hot topic in the news, in the work place and on the playground. This study looks at child development and life experiences to investigate determinants of cultural sensitivity in middle school students. Through questionnaire surveys, students provided information on life experiences and answered Likert-type items that assessed each student’s sensitivity to culture and to gender. Findings suggest that there are some life experiences that coincide with increased levels of cultural sensitivity in middle school students.
