Personal sensitivity and self-understanding are attributes which are very important for those who would teach the disadvantaged. "Sensitivity training" is recommended as a basis for self-discovery and self-actualization. Through such training the teacher can foster a climate in which a disadvantaged child can feel "valued, wanted, and worthy." Sensitivity training in teacher education classes may use such approaches as circle seating for discussions, minimal use of structured lectures and assigned readings, and inclusion of films, resource persons, and role playing in the course. An understanding of the nautre of prejudice is important for development of accepting attitudes, and creative expression may also be used in sensitivity training. (NH)
