The primary aim of this applied research project is to develop a curriculum package which can be replicated to prevent behavioral disorders that are learned, for all children in kindergarten through third grade. More specific objectives are to: substitute effective for ineffective behavior; increase the child's ability to function happily and well through an improved self-concept; improve interpersonal relationships between children, parents, and teachers by increasing communication skills; develop in children, teachers and parents skill in activating the problem-solving process; learn the relationship between feelings and behavior; involve children in decisions about their own behavior and learning; teach children to give accurate feedback as to their feelings and learning process, so that they can be helped more effectively; and help teachers and parents function more effectively as facilitators of learning. The major thrust of the project during the first year was the initial outline and development of the behavioral science curriculum for children in kindergarten through the third grades. Other activities included the selection of the experimental school and controls; orientation meetings; and development of a summer workshop for project teachers and principals. A detailed plan for evaluating changes in the adjustment of the children involved was completed. (Author/DB)
