Self Enhancing Education. Final Report.
Rhine, W. R.
The purpose of this study was twofold: (1) to evaluate the Self Enhancing Education (SEE) Project, and (2) to formulate and evaluate group learning activities for behaviorally handicapped students. SEE, developed in the schools of Cupertino, California, and implemented under a Title III grant, provided training in communication processes simultaneously to teachers, pupils, and parents. The aim was to change traditional communication patterns to increase pupil participation and freedom in the classroom. The study was implemented within a cooperative model encouraging maximum participation of school and SEE personnel. Evaluation indicated desired changes in teacher attitudes and in verbal, teacher and pupil classroom behavior. Differences between SEE and control pupils on other measures were few and inconclusive. Small group processes produced positive changes in teacher perception of pupil behavior and in psychomotor abilities related to success in school for behaviorally handicapped pupils in grades one through three, but no changes in pupils grades four through six.
