What Students Don't Know About: Cooperation, Negotiation, Organizations.
Wynne, Edward
Described here is a curricular effort to respond to the need for more adequate preparation of students in the areas of negotiating skills, cooperative efforts, and the nature of professional work. Successful cooperative and negotiative efforts require a high level of skills--skills that the isolated nature of our educational structure seldom develop. The arrangement described is the outcome of three successive quarters of development and experimentation in a foundations of education course. Students were asked to find, define, study, and report on some real problem in a real school or group of schools. The study required them to talk to students, parents, school teachers, administrators, and community organizations. Each report had to be produced by a randomly organized committee. The results have been that students get involved in issues typically handled by professionals in their work, and have lots of actual situations which call for cooperation and negotiation.
