A Unit of Interdependence for Four Year Olds.
Keach, Everett T., Jr.; And Others
This unit is planned to help the student become aware of the mutual helpfulness of family members, school workers, and community helpers so that he may begin to understand the interdependence of people. It will also help to provide him with an opportunity to practice social behaviors so as to solve his problems through democratic procedures. This study begins with the individual and the family and gradually expands to the community. The child must be helped to learn the techniques for group living in his family and in his classroom and must be gradually led to apply these techniques to community living. He must be guided so that he develops attitudes of concern for the welfare of others, appreciation for the work others do for him, and a realization of each individual's dependence on other members of the community. These attitudes, appreciations, and understandings must be developed as essentials of all human relationships. The fourteen lessons provided follow this format: 1) a behaviorly stated objective; 2) suggested materials; 3) teaching procedures; and, 4) occasionally an additional note to teachers. The complementary units in this series are: SO 001 639 through SO 001 643. (Author/AWW)
