"Roles People Play" Kit.
Goldman, Ralph M.
The draft materials in this kit were prepared for classroom experimentation employing the role instruction approach to social studies and occupational instruction at elementary and secondary levels. A major aspect of socialization consists of the roles one learns. Role instruction is designed to transmit role information in a deliberate and systematic manner so that each student can: a) become fully aware of the role learning in his daily experiences; b) grasp the implications of different roles for his social and occupational life; and, c) comprehend the impact of role-learning on the development of his own personality. The kit contains cards and booklets (the latter not yet available) that may be used by both students and teachers. Cards include: 1) basic concept cards, explaining the meaning of role, personality, and position; 2) role information cards, describing the various kinds of information units related to each social role; 3) orienting discussions, to introduce the student to real-life manifestations of role behavior, the multiplicity of roles learned by each person, etc.; 4) several role-study exercises; 5) selected role scripts (auto mechanic, mother, world citizen, soldier, and others); and, 6) a guide to evaluation of student attitudes toward specific roles. Finally, ways to apply several of these role exercises to war/peace situations are suggested. (Author/JLB)
