First Year Human Relations Project. Final Report.
Price, Roy A.; And Others
The Human Relations project grew out of the expressed and felt-need of students in Syracuse, New York. The students indicated a desire to have a course within the regular structure of the school which would help them deal with interpersonal and interracial relations. A formal, one-half credit course, offered on a pass-fail basis was developed. The general objective of the course was "to improve race relations and general interpersonal relations among high school students in each of the four city high schools." Four teachers planned the course with two ideas: the students should do the main planning, and they should be involved in the course. Methods, content, structure, and conferences are explained. Teachers felt that one outcome was an increased ability on the part of most students to communicate with other students. It is concluded that the Human Relations Course should be continued but that changes in its present format and objectives are needed. (Author/KJ)
