Human Relations Education Project. Final Evaluation Report.
Buffalo Board of Education, NY.
This project did the planning and pilot phases of an effort to improve the teaching of human relations in grades K-12 of public and private schools in the Buffalo-Niagara Falls metropolitan area. In the pilot phase, the project furnished on-the-job training for approximately 70 schools. The training was given by teams of human relations specialists working full-time for periods of 2 and 3 weeks in selected urban, suburban, and semirural schools. In such schools they provided group activities, conducted demonstration lessons, wrote curriculum materials, suggested teaching methods, helped teachers plan, observed teachers, and promoted human relations as a crucial and integral part of the curriculum. Evaluators of the project feel that the participants increased their awareness of the importance of human relations in their classrooms and in their attitudes toward student behavior. (JB)
