Coping with Conflict and Change in Our Global Society. Report of a Summer 1972 Workshop.
Diablo Valley Education Project, Orinda, CA.
A five-week summer workshop offered inservice training to twenty-eight intermediate and high school social studies and English teachers. Participants examined the concepts of conflict, power and authority, identity, and interdependence through content and team working sessions, ranging from games to lectures, and independent study in an effort to produce workable mini-units around the concepts. Rather than writing an original curriculum unit, emphasis was on coordinating available materials with the individual needs of the schools where the fourteen units would be taught by the participants. Contact will be made with teachers in a follow-up program by the DVEP staff who will visit classrooms to evaluate the effectiveness of the materials, to provide ongoing resource assistance, and to choose the best units for wider local distribution. Staff and participants evaluated the workshop favorably. Teachers plan to implement mini-units and other workshop materials in their classrooms. Staff members met their minimum goals of producing mini-units and having teachers volunteer to test-teach materials in their classrooms. (SJM)
