Ego Development Guide for Primary Grade Teachers, K-3. Project Beacon.

Self-concept theory maintains that a person's behavior is primarily influenced by his feelings about self. Since a child's self-concept emerges from social encounters, and school situations make up a large portion of such encounters, it is felt that teachers would benefit from increased understanding of the formation of self-concept, self-confidence, and social relations competence. Background information emphasizing the influence of school situations and teacher attitudes and behaviors upon self-concept growth is presented. Following is a series of suggested units for grades kindergarten to three, geared toward enhancing or modifying positively the self-concept of individual pupils. Emphasis is given to the culturally disadvantaged and to Negro children. Suggestions are made for specific activities and ways of relating the units to the other subject areas in the curriculum. (BP)
