[Stress Training for Teachers. "The Crunch"; "Black is the Colon"; and "Crossing the Line". Revised].
This series on stress training for teachers includes three film modules. They are meant to be shown in sequence, but with at least two hours of discussion between each. The purpose of these modules is not to communicate or entertain, but to stimulate discussion and role playing. The series attempts to encourage each teacher to find his/her own way to deal with feelings of anger, fear, pain, and compassion. Each film portrays possible situations and shows how an individual teacher reacts to them. Other reactions by teachers and students are interspersed. No judgment is made in the film as to whether these reactions are right or wrong. The first module deals with feelings of humiliation and anger, the second with fear, and the third with compassion. Included with the films is a leader's guide which makes suggestions for preparing for the session and aids in leading the discussion following each film. (PB)
