A Way of Looking at What I Am Doing. Developing Attitude Toward Learning.
Eggert, Wallace V.
A program designed to improve the teacher's relationships with his students is provided. The six tasks that comprise the program are aimed at aiding the practicing teacher to look at what he is doing, through use of video tape, in his interpersonal transactions with students, as well as to provide him with alternative ways of responding. Task One, Learning to Discriminate Accurate Empathy, is described from five levels (low and high) of accurate empathy. The second task, also comprised of five low and high levels, is illustrated by examples of rejection of the student and of acceptance and caring for the student. Task Three, Learning to Discriminate Genuineness, with four low or high levels of responses by the teacher, illustrates congruence or its lack. In Task Four, Coding Your Own Video Tape, the teacher is asked to code a video tape made in his own classroom, using the four tasks and his responses. A sample of a form for caluclating the response profile are provided. Task Five provides instructions to aid the teacher in interpreting his response. In Task Six, suggestions are given as to how the teacher can ascertain whether the program for the teacher has resulted in the students development of a positive attitude toward learning. A sample of a chart to be maintained by the teacher of approach and avoidance responses by the student is provided. (DB)
