The Child: Concepts of Self. A Resource Kit.
J.B. Speed Art Museum, Louisville, KY.
This resource kit endeavors to help educators focus on particular aspects of the development of a child's self-concept by using selected artworks from the J. B. Speed Art Museum (Kentucky) collection as a starting point for discussion and examination of child development. Young people will explore the experiences that will affect future choices and attitudes by looking objectively at relationships, examining the function of play and work, and reflecting on the expectations of others. The kit contains 12 slides, a teacher's manual, and an evaluation sheet. Topics examined through the slides are: (1) "About Early Childhood" (The Child); (2) "About Children at Play" (The Sutherland Children); (3) "About Siblings" (Madam Dubocq and Her Four Children); (4) "About Relationships with Parents" (The Prodigal Son); (5) "About 'Like Father, Like Son'" (The Young Sculptor); (6) "About the Education of Young Women" (Education of the Virgin); (7) "About Children at Work" (Newsboy); (8) "About Adult Expectations" (Twin Figures); (9) "About the Waiting Child" (At the Falcon Inn, Waiting for the Ferry): and (10) "About The Lifelong Influence of Childhood" (Reclining Figure: Angles). The manual includes a "Preface"; "Questioning Strategies"; a "Resource Sheet" for each image providing background information and offering sample questions for initiating classroom discussion; a "Glossary"; a "List of Slides"; and a 10-item "Bibliography."
