The Next Revolution: Educational and The Evolution of Self.
Jung, Charles C.
The author expresses the need for operationally-defined theoretical models so that an explicit value position can be taken against which the work could be evaluated. The primary response to this need has emerged as an operationally-defined theory of the evolution of social-psychological "self" which may occur in an individual, and an analysis of current change and needs in society. Most of this paper is taken from the Improving Teaching Competencies Basic Program Plan of the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory. A discussion is presented on the need for improvements in education based on appropriateness. This is followed by an examination of today's youth in terms of learning and the evolution of self, which is further broken down into five distinct phases of development. Other concepts explored by the author include human worth, dignity, failure, freedom, developmental movement, current needs, and societal change. Emphasized is the thought that linkage among roles and institutions for improving educational evaluation cannot be expected to occur by chance. Rather, creative work is needed. (BW/Author)
