Step and Hip, Humanistic Programs for Problem Secondary Students.
Utah Univ., Salt Lake City. Graduate School of Education.
Alternative programs in open education for student teachers in both the Department and the Graduate School of Education at the University of Utah are making substantial contributions to promoting growth in education students; genuine interpersonal relationships between themselves and their students; and humanistic values, attitudes, and behaviors. STEP (Student-Teacher Education Program) and HIP (Highly Important People), humanistic programs in two high schools in Salt Lake County, Utah, are serving dual functions as a) teaching centers for educating students from the University of Utah who desire student teaching experience in open classrooms, humanistic methods, team teaching, and affective curriculum development and b) "schools within a school" for poorly motivated and unsuccessful high school students. Evaluation data have been gathered through opinionnaires sent to university and high school students who formerly participated in the programs. The data indicate that the programs, in addition to providing an impetus for change in the teaching attitudes and goals of student teachers and teachers who have participated, also improve the learning attitudes and feelings toward school of the participating high school students.
