Teaching and Learning: New Methods for Old Arts.
Jacobson, Edmund
This book is predicated on the theory that students and teachers are often overtense for various reasons and that tension control can be learned and utilized to improve performance and production. The first two chapters discuss learning and motivation in general. The next three chapters discuss the influence of home and national heritage on learning in this society. The sixth chapter focuses on the improvement of learning and attention through cultivated relaxation and is further delineated in the following chapters on memory aids and the programming of students. Chapters 9 and 10 deal with the role of emotions in education, and chapter 11 presents a new psychology for teachers to be used in confronting the tension of students. The next two chapters depict the overtense pupil and the effect that sex awareness, sex education, and drugs have on the tensions of students. Chapter 15 outlines current courses in tension control, and chapter 16 is a set of questions and answers about tension control. The last three chapters of the book are devoted to teaching tension control in the classroom for students over age 10 and below age 10. The last chapter of the book provides illustrated classroom practices. (HMD)
