A Unit on Social Control for Three- and Four-Year Olds.
Keach, Everett T., Jr.; And Others
The process and concept of social control provide the organizing element around which this unit's activities are centered. In developing the activities, the authors have chosen situations which would help bring the process of social control to the child's consciousness. In teaching this unit, the teacher should realize the tripartite emphasis upon the process, affective, and substantive dimensions. The process dimension concerns itself with the development of mental abilities such as observing, identifying, collecting, and evaluating data. The affective dimension considers the internationalization of favorable attitudes toward self, immediate others, and differing races and cultures. The substantive dimension addresses itself to developing a consciousness of social control present in formal and informal relations and mechanisms. Essentially, the teaching act exists as a meld of the three processes. The seventeen lessons provided follow this format: 1) a behaviorly stated objective; 2) suggested materials; 3) teaching procedures; and, 4) occasionally an additional note to teachers. The complementary units in this series are: SO 001 639 through SO 001 643. (Author/AWW)
