The Dissident Teacher and Induced Discrepent Behaviors. Procedures Manual. Attitudes Toward Career Education Series.
Jacobsen, Kaare; Drier, Harry N., Jr.
One of five sections of materials for a program to change teacher attitudes toward career education, the procedures manual presents the theoretical base of the program, the operational plan, and program procedures for strategies to implement a comprehensive staff development effort in assimilation of a career education program. The results of the pilot study and field tests indicated that active participation in workshop activities, including role playing, does increase attitude change. The evidence substantiates the assumption that discrepant role playing must be induced in order to promote a positive change in resistive teachers. Such teachers can be influenced to change their attitudes in a specific direction as a result of planned intervention developed on the theoretical framework of Festinger's theory of cognitive dissonance. Appended materials include sample forms, memoranda, and questionnaires. (Author/MF)
