Toward More Effective Dialogue Between Teachers and Students: A Leadership and Communication Training Project.
Donnan, Hugh H.; Meadows, Mark E.
The rationale and training procedure used in a three-day communication and leadership project in a junior high school located in a southern metropolitan area of approximately 200,000 population is described. The workshop reflected a commitment to interview developmentally in the desegregation process. Four general workshop goals were formulated; (1) improved skill in communication; (2) improved leadership skills; (3) increased ability to engender helpful interpersonal relations, across both racial and student-teacher role lines, and (4) to both assess the communication systems operating in the school and develop strategies to improve these systems. A questionnaire was constructed and at the conclusion of the workshop, participants were provided an opportunity to evaluate their experiences. Results indicated a very positive response. In summary, it was felt that through such student-teacher involvement significant progress was made toward a goal eloquently stated by one student participant; that of "...making school a cool place to learn."
