The Utilization of a Care Training Program and Projected Guide to Prepare and to Train K-12 Teachers Towards a Humanistic Philosophy of Education.
Royson, Harry Adam
Clearinghouse Submission
This is a guide written to detail a humanistic philosophy of education. It is the product of a 12-week training program for experienced K-12 teachers. The training program consisted of a basic movement program, regular lectures and discussions of human relations (relating, loving, learning), and practical workshops with simulated classrooms as an environment. The participants were selected from a population of volunteer teachers. Following the training program, participants returned to their classrooms in the beginning of the fall 1974 semester prepared to put into operation their training experiences. Several forms of evaluation were chosen to measure teacher performance, including regular observations, teacher check lists, and student evaluations. Review of evaluations provided data for a review of the guide. On completion of the project, it was proposed to have a teacher training course built around the guide to be adopted in at least one college and to pursue the possibility of further adoptions. This project was carried out satisfactorily. The humanistic philosophy of education, as detailed in the guide, and the training program produced productive and effective teaching experiences for participant teachers and their pupils. A course in human relations for teachers--designed around this guide--was adopted at Monmouth College, Department of Education, West Long Branch, New Jersey. (Author/BD)
