Teachers Should Be Human Too.
Andrew, Michael D.
This document indicates the practices and goals needed in educational programs in order to create more humanistic teachers. To illustrate the content and methods of more humanistic teacher education, four areas are discussed: a) the development of knowledge and skill in characteristically human ways of knowledge acquisition and means of self-expression, b) the development of positive identity as a teacher, c) the development of skill in interpersonal communication and effective group process, and d) the development of a personal knowledge of children. The importance of small group encounters, phased introduction to teaching, and individualized instruction are emphasized. A 13-item bibliography is included. (MJM)
