Forman, Jan R., Ed.
This handbook has been prepared to stimulate and give direction to the teaching of human relations as well as to encourage a humanistic approach to teaching. It does not contain all the answers but merely offers ideas, suggestions, and information. The effectiveness of this handbook will depend on its use by teachers. It is not an end but a means to better understanding between teacher and pupil as well as between school and community. Its intent is to improve the relationship between administrators, teachers, and students. It attempts to create a desire among administrators and teachers to accept the student as an individual and is mainly concerned with the teacher-student relationship. The following are specific objectives of this handbook: (1) to create an awareness among administrators, teachers, and students of the need for better human relations; (2) to provide practical suggestions for teachers to use in the classroom; (3) to inform administrators and teachers of the resolutions passed by the West Virginia Board of Education which relate to multicultural education; (4) to provide administrators and teachers with a means for improving communication with students; (5) to develop within teachers a better self-understanding; (6) to provide a list of organizations and agencies which make available human relations resources; and (7) to provide a recommended reading list in the area of human relations.
