New Strategies for Early Childhood Education.
Butler, Annie L.
This paper focuses on the humanistic characteristics futurists predict will be needed by individuals who live in a more interdependent world and projects ways early childhood educators can teach children to deal with changing aspects of the world. Briefly discussed are teaching approaches for incorporating the coping and creative characteristics of young children into viable living skills for the future: (1) development of the child's self concepts; (2) development of the child's coping skills; (3) consideration of affect in the approach to teaching; (4) acquisition of a future focused role-image; (5) emphasis on interpersonal cooperation; (6) development of interpersonal skills; and (7) emphasis on working with parents.
