I Am Loveable and Capable. A Modern Allegory of the Classical Put-Down.
Simon, Sidney B.
The IALAC (I Am Loveable and Capable) story presents one day in the life of 14 year old Randy, who puts on his IALAC sign each morning and sets out to face the world. As "put-downs" occur at home and at school, little pieces of his sign are torn away; by the end of the day very little of the sign remains. This allegory is a tool for humanistic education which can be used by a teacher, clergyman, student, or any group leader who is concerned with making people feel loveable and capable. It deals with the "put-down," an American idiosyncrasy, which inhibits humanistic values. The content of the IALAC story can be modified to fit specific groups or dramatized for student participation. (JH)
