Human Relations Education; A Guidebook to Learning Activities.
Buffalo Public Schools, NY. Human Relations Project of Western New York.
This guidebook is designed to acquaint teachers with human relations classroom materials, extracurricular activities, and an inservice approach to self-evaluation. A product of an ESEA Title III program, it contains human relations-oriented lessons--divided by grade level and subject matter--intended to supplement or enrich existing curricula and suggest different approaches to teaching in some areas. Introductory sections present a human relations education philosophy; list key concepts in the form of attitudes, understandings, and skills; and list specific behavioral objectives for each of four phases of a human relations program: primary grades, intermediate grades, social studies (7-12) and English (7-12). The major section, "Learning Activities Guides," contains lessons (ranging in suggested length from a few minutes to five class periods) each of which includes attitude and behavioral objectives, teaching techniques and learning activities, and a list of resources. There are 12 for primary grades, seven for intermediate grades and 33 for secondary: social studies (15), English (10), French (4), math (3), and retailing (1). The inservice training section contains philosophy and outline for a group training program, discussion of the trainer's role, five group training excercises with trainer's guides, lists of films and socio-dramas, and discussion of role-playing techniques. Included also are outlines for a student extra-curricular program and an adult education program. (JS)
