"tre luf Al a recent meeting of the Willow Creek school bnard new school superintendent Dr. Alan talked lo ihe board about some of the most advanced ihinkim; in Ihe field of early childhood education. Dr. MaeLeofi presented a crnKicnscd summary of a con- j fercnce he al tended al ton with (he theme "setting the stage for learning.'' At the conference the educationist Dr. Costa suggest- ed that we may be under-utiliz- ing human resources and even "pollulins" them. The resource of optimism w often countered by negative al- titurles which are all to preva- lent in society loday. Dr. Costa sigblcd an approach which was in rrdneinc some of Ihr Toll hy students. In one school teachers decided In always say something posi- tive lo ihe worst student offend- ers. Positive statements about tlic-ic offenders appeared to help chai'CT some of their at-' tiludes which in Him reduced j discipline problems. Another resource is that of! curiosity. Dr. Costa felt that all ioo often we stamp out rather than help support curiosity by requiring students lo memorize material which is not relevant lo their inU'res! and needs. Thc fourth of trust. At. present there appears lo be an increased rmpi'nsis on cvnl- iiatimi in systems, j IT This rvalualion is of- ten associated with what has bee.n determined "perform- ance contracting." Finally the resource of love was briefly mentioned. In a love situation at school the teacher is prepared to look for reasons behind labels such as "C student." in short, to look at a students as a person rather than a category. He aiso suggested there was a need for the school to pro- vide preparation for a future where less competition and mere love is expected.
