The Human Relations Class at Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School. Research Report.
Gilbert, Katherine J.
Human Relations was a program offered to Grade 10 students at Churchill Secondary School during the 1971-72 school year in lieu of four courses. The emphasis of the program was on the development of students as people who were more aware of themselves, of other people, and of the environment. The class took part in a variety of activities during the year such as visiting art exhibits, experimenting with crafts, and making a film. For the in-class study of topics, the students worked individually, held seminars, or arranged to hear guest speakers. The class was loosely organized in that the students used the time as they wished, participated in only those activities they chose, and attended only when they wanted. The students of the Human Relations class were characterized by their teacher as "average" or "normal" in terms of their age and scholastic ability. He felt that they were more mature and more self-motivated than other students by the end of the year. Questionnaires were distributed to the students of the Human Relations class, to their parents, and to students of classes called Integrated Socials 10 (the forerunner of Human Relations). Advantages listed by the students of Human Relations were; getting to know other people better and having time to do what you want. A disadvantage reported was that people did not do anything.
