A Socio-Drama Relating Sociological Concepts to County Agents' Behaviors.
Santopolo, Frank A.; Alexander, Frank D.
In this socio-drama the extension educator had invited the sociologist for a second meeting to explore with the latter sociological concepts relevant to the county extension agent's job. The extension educator presented to the sociologist several important behaviors of the county agent as discovered through research using the critical incident technique and asked him to indicate sociological concepts that might be helpful to the agent in performing his tasks. The encounter between the 2 professionals was intended to suggest an approach that an extension educator might make to a sociologist for isolating sociological concepts relevant to the county agent's job. It ended with a commitment by the sociologist to take the lists of behaviors of county agents that the extension educator had developed through the use of the critical incident technique and relate sociological concepts to these behaviors. The sociologist in turn left 3 books with the extension educator that he felt would be useful to him in his quest for sociological concepts that would, if understood by the county agent, be helpful in his job performance.
