Center for Social Organization of Schools. Fourth Annual Report.
Johns Hopkins Univ., Baltimore, MD. Center for the Study of Social Organization of Schools.
This report describes goals, results, and work-in-progress for each of the programs through which the Center is attempting to develop a scientific knowledge of how schools affect students and to use this information for the invention of better school practices and educational forms. The major programs are 1) school organization--to determine how much student participation in social and educational decisions influences learning, independence, and attitudes toward more training; 2) social accounts--to investigate how education affects eventual vocational attainment and how it results in different vocational outcomes for blacks and whites; 3) talents and competencies--to study the effects of educational experience on a wide range of human talents, competencies, and personal dispositions; 4) simulation games--to develop group games for use in creating more desirable classroom relationships between teacher and student; 5) careers and curricula--to develop a self-administered vocational guidance device to promote vocational development and to foster satisfying curricular decisions for high school, college, and adult populations; 6) language and communication--to identify interaction skills necessary for students' successful performance. Also included are bibliographies for each program, resumes of researchers, description of the Center's organizational structure, and a publications list. (JS)
