Social Psychology: A Resource for Elementary and Secondary Educators.
The purpose of this publication is to link educators to some of the resources of social psychology, and to offer ideas and tools for use in enriching whatever role educators may play in elementary, secondary, or professional education. It briefly surveys the ingredients and dimensions of social psychology and then examines ten areas of educational practice which can benefit from the application of social-psychological resources. These areas include social psychology applied to: (1) curriculum content, (2) the teacher's role in the classroom learning process, (3) the functioning of the classroom peer group as a learning group, (4) staff development and leadership, (5) the development and operation of the school building, (6) the development of the school community, (7) the development of the larger socialization community, (8) the recruiting, training, and utilizing of the human resources needed for quality education, (9) future projections for educational planning, and (10) the utilization of social-psychological knowledge for improving education and coping with resistance to change. Also included is a "Tool Kit" of additional available resources for elementary and secondary educators. (Author/DE)
