TEACHER EDUCATION FOR HUMAN RELATIONS IN THE CLASSROOM.
SUBCOMMITTEE ON HUMAN RELATIONS IN THE CLASSROOM
BECAUSE GOOD RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE HOME, SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY ARE SO ESSENTIAL TO FULL PUPIL DEVELOPMENT, IT IS NECESSARY THAT THE TEACHER HAVE ADEQUATE PRESERVICE TRAINING IN HUMAN RELATIONS. IT WAS FOUND FROM A SURVEY OF NORTH CENTRAL ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGES THAT PROFESSORS GENERALLY DID NOT GIVE STRONG EMPHASIS TO HUMAN RELATIONS IN THEIR COURSES, AND CONSIDERABLY LESS EMPHASIS WAS GIVEN TO PROBLEMS OF INTERGROUP RELATIONS THAN TO INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS. PROFESSORS DID NOT PERCEIVE OMISSIONS IN THE COLLEGE PRESERVICE PROGRAM FOR TEACHERS, ALTHOUGH ADMINISTRATORS WHO LATER WORKED WITH THESE TEACHERS DID PERCEIVE OMISSIONS. HUMAN RELATIONS CANNOT BE BEST TAUGHT IN A SINGLE COURSE, SEMINAR, OR WORKSHOP, RATHER, IT NEEDS TO PERMEATE AN ENTIRE INSTITUTION. EACH INSTITUTION SHOULD HOLD DISCUSSIONS AMONG ITS FACULTY TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO REEVALUATE THEIR TEACHING ACTIVITIES IN THE LIGHT OF HUMAN RELATIONS. STUDENTS SHOULD BE QUESTIONED ABOUT THEIR ATTITUDES. TEXTBOOKS SHOULD BE REVIEWED FOR TRUTHFULNESS. NEW WAYS OF IMPARTING INFORMATION, CHANGING ATTITUDES, AND OF DEVELOPING VALUES SHOULD BE DEVELOPED.
