STUDIES OF HUMAN RELATIONS IN THE TEACHING-LEARNING PROCESS.
BOWERS, NORMAN D.; SOAR, ROBERT S.
THE EDUCATION OF TEACHERS IN THE METHODS AND TECHNIQUES OF EFFECTIVE GROUP MEMBERSHIP WAS THE FOCAL POINT OF THE RESEARCH PROJECT. EVALUATION STUDIES WERE ACCOMPLISHED USING LABORATORY TRAINING EXPERIMENTS IN THE AREA OF HUMAN RELATIONS. SOME 60 TEACHERS PARTICIPATED, DIVIDED INTO AN EXPERIMENTAL GROUP FOR LABORATORY WORKSHOPS AND A CONTROL GROUP. STEPS OF PRETRAINING, LABORATORY TRAINING FOR THE FORMER GROUP, AND POST-TRAINING WERE USED FOR COLLECTING PERTINENT DATA. INNOVATIVE ACTION WAS REPRESENTED BY THIS PROJECT FROM THE FOLLOWING STANDPOINTS--(1) IN THE MEASUREMENT OF TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS IN THE AREAS OF SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL CLIMATE OF THE CLASSROOM AND THE SOCIAL SKILLS OF THE CHILDREN, (2) IN THE APPLICATION OF A METHOD OF LEARNING WHICH COULD UPGRADE THESE TEACHER SKILLS, (3) IN PREDICTING WHICH TEACHERS COULD MOST LIKELY PROFIT FROM THIS TYPE OF LEARNING EXPERIENCE, AND (4) IN INCREASING UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATURE OF EFFECTIVE TEACHING. THE REPORT CONCLUDED THAT THE RESULTS OF THE PROJECT COULD ADD SIGNIFICANTLY TO MANY DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF EDUCATION. (JH)
