ON RESEARCH AND INTERGROUP RELATIONS.
LEFTON, MARK
THE USE OF THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD IS OFFERED AS THE MOST PRODUCTIVE WAY OF PROMOTING BETTER PRACTICE IN INTERGROUP EDUCATION. THE TRIAL AND ERROR METHOD CAN BE USED, BUT THE SCIENTIFIC "WHY" SHOULD BE RAISED TO DETERMINE THE REASON FOR A SPECIFIC TECHNIQUE'S SUCCESS. THE FIRST STEP TOWARD ACHIEVING A SCIENTIFIC APPROACH TO THE PROGRAMING AND EVALUATING OF INTERGROUP RELATIONS EDUCATION IS TO CONVERT DIFFICULTIES INTO PROBLEMS. FOR EXAMPLE RATHER THAN TO ASK "HOW CAN WE REDUCE PREJUDICE AMONG STUDENTS.", THE QUESTION SHOULD BE CHANGED TO "ARE MOVIES FAVORABLE TO RACIAL MINORITIES EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING RACE PREJUDICE.". SUCH A RESEARCH APPROACH PERMITS THE STEP-BY-STEP EVALUATION OF TECHNIQUES USED TO ACCOMPLISH LONG-RANGE GOALS. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "THEORY INTO PRACTICE- - INTERGROUP RELATIONS EDUCATION," VOLUME 2, JUNE 1963.
