A Humanistic Approach to In-Service Education for Teachers. Final Evaluation Report.
Khanna, J. L.
This document evaluates a Human Relations Training Program for teachers in the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee. The first part of the program, covering the period from the summer of 1968 to June 1969, is considered in detail in Appendix B. It included a 2-week summer laboratory and 14 Saturday meetings for 150 participants. The second period, extending to July 1970, included a 3-week program involving 71 teachers who gave subjective reactions to the program 3 weeks after it concluded. Follow-up interviews with 19 participants 6 months later confirmed that significant changes in self-realization had occurred. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the effects of the Training Program on participants and use was made of internal and external criteria and matched control groups. Measurement was by F Scale, Personal Orientation Inventory, Semantic Differential, Leary's Interpersonal Checklist, the Motivation Analysis Test, Ryan's Rating Scale, and the Michigan Picture Test. The results of these tests are examined in detail and indicate that the teachers taking part in the program became less authoritarian and more self-actualized, developed greater self-insight and leadership skills, and were perceived more positively by their supervisors and students.
