Helping Caribbean Teacher Trainees To Understand Their Students.
Payne, Monica A.
Currently, in both developed and developing societies, there seems to be something of a "crisis of confidence" regarding the ability of formal professional training programs to impact significantly on teachers' instructional and managerial effectiveness in the classroom. From the Caribbean, this paper reports a small-scale project involving: (1) the collection of research data by trainees themselves on their students' perceptions of the dimensions of peer group popularity and unpopularity; and (2) the subsequent utilization of the findings in the psychology component of a program for graduate secondary teachers to enhance understanding of theoretical issues and their practical awareness of classroom dynamics.
