Social Dimensions of the Self As An Open System: A Curriculum Design. Strategies for Implementation.
Macagnoni, Virginia M.
This bulletin presented an overall strategy in three parts directed toward the development of the individual as a social being, capable of building and enhancing his social properties. The social properties of the self are defined as: 1) identity, 2) acceptance and love, 3) play, 4) intelligence, 5) resource orientation, 6) work orientation, and 7) authority orientation. Part I of the project contains the definition of the seven social properties in the form of terminally stated behaviors, and a battery of questions which are directly related to and emerge from them. Part II is the delineation of an overall conceptualization process, defining perceiving-mediating-valuing processes, in which the individual student is to engage in the building of the seven social properties. Part III is concerned with the role of the teacher directed toward the development of the individual as a human being. This section has three major objectives: 1) to provide the teacher with a self-evaluation tool to assist in determining individual degrees of readiness for attempting the type of teaching called for; 2) to outline a strategy for implementation of the major ideas in the project; and 3) to furnish one or more models of teaching units addressed to a particular social property, stated behaviorally and delineated as a sub-strategy. An extensive bibliography is included. (MBM)
