Self Esteem--One Solution for the Energy Crisis.
Hamner, Tommie J.
Explores various aspects of the development of self-concept in young children and suggests activities which promote the development of self-esteem. A review of the literature pertinent to children's self-concept covers several areas: (1) the importance of a positive self-concept for effective adjustment in all aspects of life; (2) theories on the development of self-concept; (3) factors in interpersonal relationships which prohibit development of self-esteem; (4) the observable indicators of a child's concept of self; and (5) ways in which teachers can aid in the development of a positive self-concept. Classroom resources for developing self-esteem that are supplementary to the basic teacher/child interaction are provided. Included are general suggestions which are useful in every aspect of an early childhood education curriculum as well as numerous specific activities that can be incorporated into the educational program. In addition, activities are combined into a suggested week-long self-awareness unit for preschoolers. A list of useful books suitable for young children is included. (ED)
