Sensitivity Training and T-Group Procedures In a College Reading and Study Group.
Kazmierski, Paul R.
A model is proposed for utilizing some of the techniques of the laboratory method (sensitivity training and training group procedures) in a college reading and study skills course. A structure of traditional lecture sessions on study skills combined with modified training-group sessions is the suggested approach. A reading course utilizing some training-group procedures would be divided into theory sessions and laboratory sessions. The theory sessions would be traditional study-skill presentations and would meet 1 hour per day, 1 day a week. The laboratory sessions would be 2- or 3-hour blocks meeting once a week. Suggested procedures for conducting the training-group meetings are listed. By utilizing the input of the theory sessions, the training-group sessions could attack the dilemma of learning, invent solutions to the dilemma, internalize the solution by group feedback, and generalize the solution with applications to the actual learning situation. References are included. (WB)
