Improving Interpersonal Relationships among Senior High School Students in A Recently Desegregated School.
Lowe, Joseph M.
This pilot project tests the effectiveness of group process techniques and value clarification strategies for changing attitudes of senior high school students participating in a curriculum involving extensive media utilization. Specifically, the study provides opportunities for students: (1) to examine alternatives and to talk about the values and consequences of those finally selected; and (2) to examine the similarities and differences of people, particularly those in racial and religious subcultures. The study involves 30 black students and 30 white students who attended five seminars featuring a free exchange of ideas and feelings. The seminars used books, taped programs, field trips, log books, and value sheets in their instructional approach. Subjects were administered the Tennessee Self Concept Scale and the Social Distance Scale before and after the seminars. Results show that the program achieved some success in modifying attitudes toward self and others. (Author/LAA)
