The Encounter-Communication Workshop.
Jakobovits, Leon A.
This paper outlines a program of inservice training for teachers and administrative school personnel designed to foster a better understanding of the problems involved in the education of children from minority groups within an educational system that is defined and administered by the cultural interests of the dominant social or national community. The Encounter-Communication Workshop, a program of study conducted in small groups in the bilingual school setting, is designed to give the individual a better understanding of himself within the context of interpersonal communication. The study program involves two types of activities: an objective analysis of role dyadic interactions in the school in terms of a linguistic-communication model, and an analysis of the subjective aspects of interpersonal relations, including social contracts, trust, risk-taking, self-image and its management, and personal metaphysics. Included in these activities are an initial diagnosis of the prevalent modes of personal interaction in the particular school setting and action programs designed to introduce changes coupled with constant feedback and evaluation of the results.
