Bureau of Indian Affairs Workshop '69. Final Report.
Northern Arizona Univ., Flagstaff.
With the objective of improving communication skills, specific academic skills, and problem-solving ability among teachers of Indians, this workshop organized three major activity groups: M Groups--mixed level groups for improving communication skills and self perception; I Groups--special interest groups for improving skills in specific academic areas; T Groups--task groups for improving skills in relation to the individual's position and environment. Other activities included demonstration classes, a laboratory school of 40 Indian children divided into two classes, and speeches by consultants on specialized topics. The 566 workshop participants were several Indian lay adults and teachers and administrators from Northern Arizona University, Central Washington State College, Utah State University, and the University of South Dakota. Evaluation of behavior change was effected by pre- and posttesting of participants. The participants were also asked to evaluate the workshop's effectiveness. (The report contains a 79-page data section which presents details of the tests and questionnaires.) (RT)
