Suggested Exercises for Training Inner City Teachers. Field Paper 25, Interim Level of Development.
Giammatteo, Michael C.
Nine group exercises for developing organizational skills and personal and interpersonal insight in inner city teachers are presented. The exercises, which consist of rationale and instructions for the user, are devoted to developing an understanding of verbal communication; investigating the roles of a helper, of a white counselor and black teacher in a conflict, and of a superintendent of schools and consultant in a race crisis; motivating interracial discussions; developing group skills in revising and reacting to policy documents; and exploring strategies for creative conflict. The latter also proposes how decisionmaking should be structured in an organization. An additional exercise (not necessarily for a group) explains the advantages of a time bar diagram (Critical Path Method network) over a conventional bar chart in long range planning. (LP)
