The Role of the Teacher in Intervention Programs. Proceedings of the Head Start Research Seminars: Seminar No. 6, The Teacher in Intervention Programs (1st, Washington, D.C., April 18, 1969).
Sigel, Irving E.; And Others
This seminar on the role of teachers in intervention programs consists of five papers. The first serves as an introduction and stresses the necessity of teachers' acceptance of change for program success. In the second paper, Sigel and Jackson expand on one of Sigel's introductory themes, the central role of the teacher in the process of change and her need to have the right attitudes. Next, Schalock presents a detailed model for teacher training programs. The basic assumption of this model is that prospective teachers should, before certification, demonstrate both the proper attitude and the ability to carry on the functions of a modern teacher, including participating in intervention projects. In the fourth paper, McDavid discusses the teacher as a socialization agent, helping the child to be able to live in his own society. Finally, Dr. Beller reports on an experimental study of authoritarian and democratic teachers that shows the significant effect the teacher has both on what the child learns, and on his approach to learning. (Document ED 034 088 has the full text of the proceedings of all six Head Start seminars in this series.) (MH)
