The Human Relations Performance Curriculum: A Commitment to Intentionality.
Ivey, Allen E.; Rollin, Stephen A.
This paper describes a curriculum in human relations, written from a behavioral frame of reference, the primary objective of which is the development of teachers who can act freely and spontaneously, i.e. with intentionality. Intentionality defines a central objective of teacher training, namely the teacher who can respond and act appropriately in the constantly changing and not always predictable classroom situation. The curriculum is designed to give teacher trainees a set of behaviors and a method useful not only in teaching human relations, but teaching in other areas as well. Specific skills in an area of human relations behavior (eg. relaxation, attending behavior, etc.) are arranged in a hierarchical fashion which must be performed progressively and successfully. An example of such a hierarchy is presented giving both performance criteria and performance-oriented instructional tasks. The paper concludes with a description of the intentional teacher: a person who can act in a multitude of contexts and situations. (TL)
