Warshow, Joyce P.; Bepko, Raymond A.
Seventeen intermediate level classes for the educable mentally retarded were involved in an investigation of the factor structure of the Social Learning Environment Rating Scale (SLERS), an instrument designed to quantify teacher-student behavior based on the Social Learning Curriculum (SLC). The 17 classes were observed implementing six experiences (lessons) from Function VII (Emotional Security) of the SLC. Analyses was based on the following five factors: problem emergence, problem clarification, problem resolution, application of learning, and the social learning environment. A major finding was that the factor structure underlying the SLERS generally validated the theoretical foundation of the SLC from which it was developed. (LS)
