School Staffing Patterns and Pupil Interpersonal Behavior: Implications for Teacher Education.
McKenna, Bernard H.
The emerging educational tasks of developing in pupils interpersonal attitudes and behaviors are not being accomplished by such technological devices as computer instruction and educational television and such school organizational patterns as team teaching and nongraded plans because they mainly offer ways for promoting current learning task priorities, i.e., knowledges, understandings, and skills in subject matter areas. The model for instructional staff differentation presented here suggests five teacher proficiency types based on categories of pupil learning tasks: (1) the Teacher Technologist skilled in systems approaches and a variety of hard- and software for administering basic skills and knowledges, (2) the Liberal Enlightener, a master presenter, serving to amplify knowledge acquisition in areas in which every individual is not required to be proficient, (3) the Identifier of Talents able to promote exploration in broad fields, (4) the Developer of Talents and Aptitudes, a specialist in a particular discipline, trained to develop pupils' special potentials, (5) the Facilitator of Attitude and Interpersonal Behavior Development possessing human relations attitudes and skills for assisting students in attaining such behaviors as acceptance and appreciation of cultural differences and group leadership roles.
