Models for Educational Change. Monograph 2.
Bertrand, Alvin L., Ed.; Von Brock, Robert C., Ed.
The monograph is based upon a series of papers presented at a 1967 staff development workshop on the Conceptual Frameworks of the Social Sciences: Implication for Laboratory Programs. The four major areas investigated by these papers are: (1) the nature of culture and its relationship to educational processes; (2) the application of social organization and social interaction models to programs of intercultural education; (3) the influence of social action with regard to instigated social change in large social systems; and (4) the structure and implications of the diffusion process in all areas of education. Considerable emphasis is placed on the role education plays in social change processes. (JM)
