Human Development Program. Program Report.
Henrie, Samuel N.
The human relations unit, focusing on the affective domain, is designed for grades pre K-4, but is applicable to junior high grades. Objectives are to help children develop self confidence, self awareness, and social interaction skills. Teaching/learning strategies emphasize interaction among teacher and student, and group communication. A unique feature of the program is the "Magic Circle" discussion and activity session which encourages two-way communication and deals constructively with emotions. Topics and activities of these sessions are fairly structured, presented in a given sequence, and enforce certain rules. The content of the program involves the children's own experiences. Basic information on the program is provided in five sections: 1) Goals and objectives; 2) Content and materials; 3) Classroom action which includes a typical lesson, evaluation of students, and role of classroom personnel; 4) Implementation: requirements and costs; and 5) Program development and evaluation.
