The Study Circle as a Teaching Situation.
School Research Newsletter, 1973-16
This report is an outline of the content of a 3-year project which is divided into seven phases. Through a review of the literature and interviews with circle leaders, Phase I investigates what knowledge exists on study circles. Phase II presents information on the educational psychology of the study circle gathered through questionnaires, interviews, and participant observations. Phase III analyzes how the study circle differs from group work in adult education. This analysis is achieved through evaluation of studies in progress. Phases IV and V deal with impediments to study circles and the role of course material in implementing these circles. Follow-up studies, analysis, and evaluation of course material are methodologies used in these phases. To ascertain what training information a circle leader needs, phase VI uses questionnaires and interviews and experiments with different forms of guidance. Through summaries of experience gained in study circles, phase VII investigates how the study circle activities are to be evaluated. Interim reports will be issued as the project proceeds. (BRB)
