Levy, Irena; Yoneshige, Dora
The module is intended to help educators understand the components of school climate and its influence on the integration of students with handicaps. Three competencies are addressed: (1) to develop an understanding of the concept of school climate, identify its components and analyze its relationship to educational goals; (2) to develop an awareness of one's level of influence, the capacity to effect change, and the relationship of others' level of influence; and (3) to develop an awareness of school climate at their individual schools and utilize a systematic strategy for effecting change. Objectives are presented for each competency and handouts address such issues as climate outcomes (including respect, trust, and high morale), determinants of school climate, levels and kinds of influence, social groups, networking, and problem solving sequences.
