Elementary Affective Education in Human Relations: Teachers Guide.
Florida Univ., Gainesville. P. K. Yonge Lab. School.
The activities and resources in this teacher's guide have been developed and field tested as part of the research and development mission of the P. K. Yonge Laboratory School of the College of Education of the University of Florida. The Elementary Affective Education for Human Relations Project utilized classroom teachers in a variety of settings to assist in the development and evaluation of these educational experiences for children. The program consists of techniques and activities, in conjunction with related learning resources, designed to provide 8-, 9-, and 10-year-old pupils with planned opportunities to grow in understanding and develop attitudes and skills needed to relate with persons from differing ethnic, cultural, and social backgrounds. Specific objectives include reduction of intergroup prejudice by modifying attitudes toward self and others in a positive direction, increasing self-awareness, and increasing the pupil's sense of well-being. Following field testing, activities were examined in light of teachers' comments and suggestions, with new ideas and activities added. Supplementary learning resources, available in several Florida counties, have been added to indicate the nature of materials available to classroom teachers. A teacher is encouraged to utilize this guide as a "recipe book." (Author/JM)
