Perspectives on Organizations: Viewpoints for Teachers.
Corwin, Ronald G.; Edelfelt, Roy A.
This publication is the first volume in a series of training publications, "Perspectives on Organizations," designed to develop among future and practicing teachers an awareness of what organizations are, how organizations affect them, and how they can deal with organizations. The materials in this series were developed when Teacher Corps decided to include the study of organizations in its 1975 Corps Member Training Institute for preservice and inservice teachers. The preface underscores the significant contribution the study of organizations can make to the field of teacher education. Part I, "Teaching and Learning About Organizations," contains an overview, rationale for the study, and instructional objectives. Part II, "Life in Organizations," is an introduction to organization theory and basic related concepts. Divided into two sections, it deals with the questions, "Why study organization?" and "What are organizations like?" The subject of Part III, "Organizations in Action," tells how the instructors and learners might go about exploring organizational concepts. Activities in Part III can be used to enrich the examination of key concepts and to draw on the experience of participants as a critical element of learning. An appendix includes abstracts of selected readings and a suggested film list along with a bibliography. (SK)
