Children's Social Values: An Action Research Study

By Arthur W. Foshay; Kenneth D. Wann | Go to book overview

Introduction

YOU LOOK at the children. The way they come into the room, the way they sit, the way they look at you, all suggest the attitudes they have: toward you, toward school, toward one another, toward themselves. More than anything else you want to have a constructive effect on their attitudes while they're in your care.

"We" were the teachers in six elementary schools and a group of teachers in the high school in Springfield, the elementary supervisor and the curriculum director of the Springfield schools, and three members of the staff of the Horace Mann-Lincoln Institute of School Experimentation who served as research consultants. Some of this book is written as if by our collective hand, some as if by those of us working at one of the specific researches reported in the chapter of Part II, and some as a study of the teachers by the consultants. It all amounts to the same thing, however: the report as a whole is both by and about all of us.

Two of the consultants assumed the responsibility for preparing the manuscript. Arthur Foshay wrote Chapters 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, and Kenneth Wann Chapters 3, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13.
