Overview of "Human Interaction in Education".
Banks, William H., Jr.
A course for students of secondary education was designed to help them develop insights into human interaction and to develop and practice communication skills. It was hoped that these students would develop and practice communication skills in their daily lives, so that their chances of using them in the classroom would be improved. The class was partitioned and scheduled so that a relatively large number of students could participate in communication exercises and the teacher could interact with nearly every class member during each meeting. Video tapes introduced students to specific concepts, and a study guide was written to accompany the tapes, provide exercises, and list additional readings. The material covered in the course and the concerns of the faculty in developing the course were supported by a report which found that teacher education programs lack the human interaction element. The table of contents of the study guide is appended, as well as a list of primary and secondary references used in the class, and several role playing and classroom situation exercises. (FG)
