Humanistic Techniques.
Ittzes, Kata
One teacher of English as a second language found that Gertrude Moskowitz' humanistic approach to instruction brought about significant changes in her small and diverse class. The direct results she perceived included very strong ties within the group, mutual trust and interest, values changes, and expressions of sentiment. Indirect results, those that altered the teaching and learning process, included elimination of classroom boredom, better student lesson preparation and home study, student demand for communicative work, student demand for more grammar and vocabulary development, simplified assessment of assignments, no class stratification among those preparing for standardized exams and those who were not, and improved teacher sensitivity to the students' needs and interests.
