A Sense of History: The Relationship of Social Awareness to Human Relations in the Classroom.
Jones, Phillip E.; Retish, Paul M.
The results of two class surveys of students in a course addressing racism and discrimination in educational and social service systems are analyzed. The course objective was to help students develop the personal insight and analytical skills needed to synthesize information on human rights issues. The study indicated that the students were not very knowledgeable about issues affecting people culturally different from themselves. It is suggested that development of the cognitive skills necessary to improve human relations and create social change may be an abstract exercise for socially unaware students with little affective learning occurring.
