Razvijanje dustvenosti srednjoskolske omladine (The Development of Sociability among Secondary School Youth).
Makaric, R.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a book in which the author researched the development of sociability among secondary school youth. The book sets forth, mainly on the basis of empirical studies, the outcome of educational action to develop sociability among the youth. The inquiry also embraced the effects of social relationships and the organized social environment. Using the technique of statistical sampling, the investigation covered 640 pupils from 25 classes in their final year at 16 secondary schools in the Socialist Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. Investigation of the mutual relations between young people confirms that friendship is the typical feature of adolescence. The number of friends an adolescent makes who do not attend the same school is relatively large. The pupil replies to questions indicate that moral qualities and character are the basis given for establishing and maintaining friendships, and sincerity is the most sought after virtue. There is a high degree of social motivation among teenagers. Most of those questioned believe that age differences form no obstacles to friendship, although most admitted that their friends were usually of the same age. Current moral standards greatly influenced friendships, as well as a marked lack of racial and national prejudices. (Author/GDB)
