Banathy, Bela H.; And Others
Materials presented in this curriculum guide are designed to provide students with the information and skills they need to work effectively in task-oriented groups. The curriculum is presented in eight self-contained units or modules, each of which emphasizes a particular set of group interaction attitudes, knowledge, and skills. These include communicating successfully, using group resources advantageously, resolving conflicts, planning and working with others, evaluating group accomplishment and affinity, setting examples and sharing leadership, making and carrying out group decisions, and cooperating to accomplish the required task. For each module, worksheets are provided for the students, and related objectives, teaching suggestions, and evaluation procedures are provided for the teacher. All modules follow the same general outline: Preparation for module phase, problem exposure phase, instructional phase, and application phase. Approximately half the document is a section on teaching suggestions. This section is divided into subsections which correspond to the eight student modules. Each subsection includes a list of group objectives, a list of individual student objectives, instructions for using the student worksheets, teaching suggestions for additional student activities, and a group observation form.
