A Study of the Effect of Human Relations Training on Self-Concepts of Student Teachers.
Acklen, Leila McCormick
This study was designed to determine whether student teachers receiving human relations training along with their student teaching experience would show any changes in their self-concepts and to see if these changes were significantly different from those of student teachers involved in the student teaching experience only. A 30-hour, Carhuff-based, human relations training program was provided for two groups of student teachers concurrently with their student teaching experience. At the end of the program, participants showed highly significant gains in self-concept as measured by the Tennessee Self Concept Scale and favorable gains according to the Personal Orientation Inventory. When compared to a control group of student teachers who received no human relations training, results indicated that student teachers receiving human relations training made significantly greater gains in self-concept. These conclusions lend support to the movement to include affective education in teacher education programs. Attached are outlines for 15, two-hour, human relations training sessions. (Author/MM)
