How He Sees Himself. Follow-up Study.
New Orleans Public Schools, LA.
This document is an extension of a previous study undertaken to determine whether a modified curriculum that would effect children's self-concept could be developed. The subjects for the research program were children from two kindergarten classes located in disadvantaged areas. Three tests were administered: (1) Stanford Binnet Intelligence Scale, Form L-M; (2) Geometric Designs; and (3) Draw-A-Man. Eight months later the same tests were given. Both batteries of tests were administered to an experimental class and a control class. The results of the evaluation indicate that the innovations and curriculum changes introduced into the model experimental class were very effective. After eight months the children demonstrated increased skill on motor-visual tasks, greater fluency in vocabulary and oral communication, and an apparent awareness of themselves and their peers. Discussed are factors contributing to the children's gains. Also included are two guides, one for improvement of self-concept and another for language development. (Author/MC)
