CREATING CLIMATES FOR GROWTH.
FULLER, FRANCES F.; AND OTHERS
THE TEACHER-PUPIL-PARENT RELATIONSHIPS THAT INFLUENCE CHILD DEVELOPMENT ARE EXPLORED IN THIS PAPER. THE ANALYSIS PRESENTED IS BASED UPON THE FINDINGS OF STUDIES CONDUCTED BY THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CENTER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AND UPON TWO PRECEDING PROJECTS--THE "MENTAL HEALTH IN TEACHER EDUCATION PROJECT" AND THE "PERSONALITY, TEACHER EDUCATION AND TEACHER BEHAVIOR PROJECT." THE AUTHORS SEE THE COMPLEX TASK OF THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHER AS A PRODUCT OF AN INTIMATE, ENDURING, POWERFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH ALL KINDS OF CHILDREN AND ALL KINDS OF PARENTS, AND OF THE COMPLEX NATURE OF EACH INDIVIDUAL WHICH IS ALWAYS PARTIALLY UNKNOWN BOTH TO HIMSELF AND TO THE PERSON WITH WHOM HE INTERACTS. AN UNDERLYING PREMISE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS PROJECTS WAS THAT TEACHERS NEED TO FULLY KNOW THEMSELVES AND THEIR ENVIRONMENT. TEACHING DONE BY PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS WAS SCRUTINIZED BY CAMERA, TAPE RECORDER, AND TRAINED OBSERVERS TO DISCOVER HOW THESE TEACHERS INTERACTED WITH CHILDREN, WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE THEY WERE, AND HOW THE CHILDREN RESPONDED TO THEM. THE AUTHORS REPORT FINDINGS ON (1) THE TEACHERS' CONCERNS ABOUT THEMSELVES AND THEIR TASKS AS TEACHERS, (2) INDIVIDUAL TEACHING STYLES, (3) METHODS OF "SOLVING" THE PROBLEM CHILD, (4) METHODS OF GATHERING INFORMATION RELEVANT TO THE STUDENTS AND TEACHING PROBLEMS, (5) FORMULATING HELPFUL HYPOTHESES, (6) TESTING HYPOTHESES, (7) THE USE OF CLASSROOM RESOURCES, AND (8) HOW ADMINISTRATORS CAN HELP.
