Guide for Teacher Inservice in Ekistics. A Study of Man in His Environment.
Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools, CA.
This guide for teacher inservice training is focused on the concept of Ekistics--the study of man in his environment. The strategies presented are based on generic inservice culminating in a management planning model, purposefully generic to all inservice and intended to add support to the personnel who would be designing inservice. The steps to be followed start with planning functions of an inservice management committee and progress through the implementation functions. The three sections of the guide are the planning section, the syllabus for an Ekistics inservice training program, and a resource section. The section on planning includes goals and objectives, solution strategies, and a planning model. The syllabus is broken into three sections, motivational strategies, concept development strategies and classroom strategies. The multidisciplinary activities in these three sections provide opportunity for observation, discussion, problem solving, and field trips. The resource section includes the names, mailing addresses, and price of Ekistics-related materials; these include books, 16mm films, filmstrips, film loops, tapes, transparencies, slides, and study prints.
