Evaluation of the Affective Education Training Program. Final Report 18.3.
Brownsmith, Keith; And Others
Presented is the final report of the Affective Education Training Program, designed to help regular and special education teachers become aware of, interested in, and skilled at dealing with cognitive and affective concerns--such as the "classroom climate"; the merging of affective and cognitive learning; and human feelings, needs and behaviors. Covered in part I are the program's purpose (to humanize education) and objectives (nine statements beginning with an objective for the teacher, and followed by an expected student outcome). The purpose of formative evaluation is briefly outlined in part II. Evaluation procedures are described in part III in terms of the population, measures used, administration of teacher workshops, and administration of measures. In part IV, results are presented in table form and discussed for the following areas: attitude toward training package; teachers' attitudes about feelings, needs, and interpersonal interaction in the classroom; understanding of content; expected and actual use of techniques presented in the package; and open ended comments about the package. Among conclusions and recommendations given in part V are that the content of the Affective Education Training Program is sufficiently interesting for the package to be disbributed to the field; and that the audiotape be edited so that terms foreign to the average teacher be omitted or clearly defined. Appendixes include statistical data and sample questionnaires. (SBH)
