Norris, Jack A., Jr.
A course was designed to study the causes of individual behavior through an analysis of the factors involved in the development of personality, with special emphasis on the individual's perception and unique response to his environment. The course is based on the premise that the learner will investigate how and why people behave and then attempt to analyze his situation, clarify his values, and decide on the process or processes he will use in determining his patterns of behavior and approaches to life. Six basic goals of the course are presented and for each goal a chart is provided which explains the focus, objective, and learning activities related to that goal. The goals are (1) to investigate factors affecting personality development; (2) to identify ways of perceiving and reacting; (3) to identify alternative modes of behavior; (4) to discover the decision-making process of choosing effective behavior; (5) to discover that one's behavior affects that of others toward him; and (6) for the student to examine and evaluate himself.
