A Systematic Approach to Tension Monitoring and Tension Reduction in an Educational Setting.
Melancon, Donald
The Kankakee, Illinois, school district investigated the causes of social conflict in the school district and developed a system of tension monitoring and reduction. Causes of tensions identified by the school district come under the headings institutional, instructional, and personal-interaction. The school's program for tension reduction, once critical levels of tension have been reached, is to introduce activities to create positive excitement that counter and reduce the tension. Some of the activities described in the report include class projects and field trips, discussions with parents and student leaders, clean-up campaigns, cultural assemblies, and school dances. The relative effectiveness of these different activities is discussed. (JF)
