Improvement of Self-Concept: A Vital Factor in Career Development.
Pietrofesa, John J.
The effectiveness of the teacher and the school in helping children to gain a more positive and realistic view of one's self is discussed. A workshop, attended by 65 elementary school teachers, and designed to aid in their understanding of self concept and to help them to put this understanding into practice in the classroom is described. The procedural format of each of the 11 four-hour programs was (1) a one-hour lecture by a university consultant, (2) a one-hour discussion in small groups with school counselors as leaders, and (3) a two-hour session to develop classroom material to foster self-understanding. Examples of classroom activities and occurrences resulting from the program are presented. (PS)
