Suggested Activities for Learning About Role Behaviors, Problem Solving and Force Field Techniques.
Giammatteo, Michael C.
Discussions and other activities designed for group learning in the areas of role behaviors, problem solving, and force field techniques are presented in this paper used as material in a workshop for student teachers. Basic to the presentation are the following premises: (1) behavior is controlled by value structure, (2) unstable values may cause changes in a progressive society, (3) communication has the power to control values, and (4) role is related to value judgment and to needs, as well as to status positions which permit one to secure basic needs. Activities (nine) are described. Activities A and B involve listing instances from personal experience related to role determiners; C is a discussion of role theory and conflict; D and E involve discussions on the role of teachers, and on major roles and determiners. Other discussion topics are: F, family problems; G, differences in elementary and secondary school services; H, problem solving steps; and I, using force field techniques in problem diagnosis. Points of departure for discussion are included together with an evaluation form. (AE)
