The Student Teacher and Human Relations. AST Bulletin Number 26.
Ramsey, Irvin L.
The student teacher must develop and incorporate into his behavior human relations skills to enable him to relate effectively to members of his classroom and of the school community. Serving as a basis for evaluation, a method of gaining the fullest satisfaction from teaching, and a prerequisite to more effective teaching, these skills are dependent on the observation of certain basic principles within the framework of self knowledge: many interests and varied experiences contribute to the development of a well-rounded individual; acceptance of the opinions and individual characteristics of others reflects a belief in the worth of the individual; consistent behavior is an aid to the establishment of good rapport; readiness, willingness and promptness are indicative of a genuine attitude; appearance is an introduction to the kind of person one is; anger and gossip tend to obscure rather than solve problems; a healthy sense of humor nurtures a reciprocal relationship which does not flourish at the expense of others; the mode of expression conveys meaning; frankness, honesty, and straight-forwardness alleviate doubts and misunderstandings; compliments and criticism must be administered and received judiciously; and friendship is based on respect. (Included are some descriptive situations in which the principles may be identified, and a four-item selected reference list.) (SM)
