This report of the authors' study and reflections about voluntarism and the present and future of volunteer activity is intended to be useful as a resource, stimulus, and guide for those using volunteers; for organizers of "cause movements"; for professors of graduate students in service professions; and for anyone interested in voluntarism. Chapter 1 begins with some assumptions about the relationship between democracy, voluntarism, and personal development. Ten social trends thought to have relevance for the development of voluntarism are summarized in the second chapter; Chapter 3 analyzes the variety of needs and opportunities for volunteers, and reviews some new patterns and trends in the use of volunteers. Chapter 4 explores the bases of motivation of those who volunteer, and challenges professionals to extend their use of and trust in volunteers. Chapter 5 summarizes and analyzes the problems and practices of recruitment and orientation of volunteers. Goals, methods, and designs for training volunteers are explored in Chapter 6, and the need for training of trainers is discussed in Chapter 7. a "case study of the future" is described in Chapter 8. In a concluding epilogue, the authors attempt to help the reader make a bridge between this volume and his own situation. It is followed by a comprehensive, classified, annotated bibliography of significant literature about voluntarism. (Author/JLB)

Interpersonal perceptions of teachers, students, and parents; an action-research project for the in-service training of teachers by David H Jenkins( Book )

12 editions published between 1951 and 2015 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the story of an action-research project. Such research is planned to help in the solving of an immediate and practical problem, as well as to advance basic scientific knowledge. This book is also a study in problems of communication. Working together effectively, as all kinds of groups of people must do, requires successful intercommunication of information, understandings, attitudes, and feelings. When any part of this necessary communication breaks down, difficulties multiply. It is really surprising how little people feel free to communicate with others. To a large extent, as Chapter 1 will indicate, we try to do what we think other people expect us to do. But if each individual or group has an incorrect perception of what the other individual or group expects of him, his action, no matter how well performed, will not be the right action. Poor communication is at the heart of many human relations problems. The age-old problem of school and community relationships and of teacher and student relationships is a part of the story of this study. The methods by which these relationships were examined through action-research, using a human relations survey, have many important implications, not only for education, but also for other areas where human relations problems appear. The action-research project reported here, stripped of its sometimes strange vocabulary and percentage tables, is a simple story in an area familiar to all of us. Teachers, parents, and children were having the usual trouble with each other, just as many other different groups which must work together. The problem might easily have been between teacher and supervisor, or supervisor and administrator. In this case the persons involved were professionally alert, and took up these problems in an in-service training program for teachers"--Foreword.

Chapter ii discusses Fox's concept of the humane classroom in terms of interpersonal relations, group processes, individualized instruction, and the teacher's role. Three classroom evaluation instruments for teachers and students are provided. Chapter iii defines Fox's innovative approaches to curriculum development and evaluation as he sought to relate curriculum to new values, styles of life, and motivation of the young. Chapter iv presents methods of diagnosing the human dynamics of the school. Tools for assessing the building climate, classroom group, student-teacher relationship, and school-home orientation are provided. Chapter v explores Fox's ideas about administrator and teacher leadership and examines tools for educational leaders for planning, decisions, and actions. Chapter vi discusses Fox's methods for getting significant educational innovations identified, evaluated, and used by others. Chapter vii reviews Fox's concern for the continuing professional development of teachers and administrators. The final chapter presents thoughts from Fox's former students. A bibliography of his published works concludes the document. (Author/KC)

Studies in topological and vector psychology by Kurt Lewin( Book )

14 editions published between 1940 and 1977 in English and German and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a beginning study in topological psychology, enabling the student of psychology to make a fresh start in the understanding and utlization of Dr. Kurt Lewin's methods. Certain it is that all psychologists are interested in Dr. Lewin's major attempt to employ new methods of formulating and mathematizing in psychology in such a way as to retain the basic and primary demands of psychology itself. His dynamic theories lead to certain derivatives whose experimental confirmation rightly is held to be of special significance. In these earlier studies the constructs have been kept semimathematical, as against nonmathematical (which would be confusing) or a display of mathematical technicalities that become devoid of psychological meaning. The work moves forward with two feet upon the ground: one theoretical or conceptual, the other experimental. The why and the what are brought into mutual relationship; they are made to serve each other. The validity of this process rests upon its demonstrated fruitfulness. That Lewin and his colleagues are willing to attack the hard problems that lie at the heart of social psychology (although out on the periphery of psychology as revealed to most pre-Gestalt workers), is in itself encouraging"--Preface.
