Desegregation, the Learning Process, and Changing Values in Human Relations. Institute Interim Report.
Strack, C. M.; Dahlstedt, W. A.
The Institute was conducted from June 6, 1966 through July 8, 1966 by Henderson State Teachers College, which accepted forty-five participants in teams of three from each of fifteen school districts. The team consisted of a supervisor, a guidance person, and a language arts specialist or classroom teacher. Those participants nominated were considered potential leaders in the task to enhance effective education and desegregation. The Institute's objectives were as follows: (1) increase insight and understanding of multi-cultural contrasts and conditions present in desegregated classrooms; (2) increase ability to deal with language skills within the classroom; (3) become aware of own and other's attitudes, which condition and restrict teaching success; (4) reach a greater level of skill in formulating and applying corrective programs in the classroom; (5) examine evaluation procedures as related to a multi-cultural class; and, (6) assess possible gains from applying ideas of methodology, such as ungraded schools, team teaching, and more complete audio-visual procedures.
