Interpersonal Skills Training for Teachers. National Consortium for Humanizing Education, Interim Report No. 2 (Introductory Materials).
Aspy, D. N.; And Others
The experimental treatment administered in this study was the training of teachers to utilize interpersonal skills in the classroom. The training process consisted of three elements: (1) development of skills in the measurement of one's own teaching behavior, (2) individual feedback of the analysis of instruction samples provided by each teacher at monthly intervals, and (3) training to increase skills in interpersonal facilitation. In order to standardize the training for purposes of analysis and replication, skills modules were developed and processed through two cycles of application and revision. This report presents the refined training modules and details the revision process. Some of the training modules are devoted to: (1) developing skills in accepting feelings, (2) increasing praise, (3) accepting student ideas; (4) increasing student involvement; (5) acquiring program development skills, and (6) working with small groups.
