Humanistic/Behavioristic Training Program for Teachers.
Brownlee, Gwyn; Ring, Barbara
The purpose of this practicum was to develop, field test, evaluate, and disseminate two teacher training packages--elementary and secondary--which would integrate behavioristic and humanistic approaches to classroom management. The practicum was divided into three phases. Phase 1 involved program development. Activities included small group discussions, demonstrations, role-playing, simulation games, puzzles, contests, case studies, and short/long term planning. Field test procedures comprised Phase 2. Both elementary and secondary teachers participated in eight training sessions. During each session they planned classroom implementation strategies. Small group sharing sessions were conducted after each training session. Formal and informal process and product evaluation data were collected throughout the field test by means of (a) evaluation forms, (b) records of office referrals, (c) observation forms, and (d) prepracticum and postpracticum attitude inventories. Phase 3 involved the statewide dissemination of completed elementary and secondary packages. Each package contained a leader's manual, a participant's manual, and audiovisual materials. (Questionnaires, forms, agendas, and other materials related to the practicum are included in the appendix.) (PB)
