Social Work and the Training of Teachers of the Disadvantaged: A Final Report - Part V.
Adams, Raymond S.; And Others
The potential relevance of social work in the development of a teacher training program for teachers of disadvantaged children is investigated. Outcomes of the investigation are presented in the following discussions: (1) the deliberations of a Social Work consortium; (2) a condensed version of the material abstracted in the literature search; (3) a conceptual mapping of the field, accompanied by brief listings of relevant facts; and (4) a final summation. The information contained in the abstracts is grouped according to content under the following headings: The Family Unit; Negativism Toward the Poor; Impact on Poverty; Behavioral Characteristics of the Poor; Inferred Psychological Characteristics of the Poor; Characteristics of Thought Processes and Verbal Skills of the Poor; The Disadvantaged Negro and Other Minority Groups; Education and the Disadvantaged; and Recommendations for Education of the Disadvantaged. The summation discusses education-social work similarities and differences, an extrapolation from social work to education, teacher expectations, and the teacher in the organization.
