Me and Myself: Pattern of Healthful Living, Level K. A Values Curriculum, Second Revision.
This curriculum guide for kindergarten teachers contains values-based classroom lessons which are intended to assist students in the development of a positive self-concept, rational thinking processes, and a personal and societal value system. Teaching techniques include role playing, story telling, classroom discussion, puppet shows, skits, and use of audiovisuals. Lessons are provided on two major topics: Self-Awareness of the Physical Body and Self-Awareness of Feelings. Lesson outlines contain purpose, concepts, affective objectives, class activities, specific teaching procedures, guiding questions, evaluation techniques, and lists of materials needed. For many lessons classroom stories are included. Bibliographies of additional teacher resource materials and values-related children's books are provided. Appendices include procedures for group discussion and role playing, patterns for puppets, and a curriculum-materials resource list. The curriculum developers recommend that teachers receive training in affective teaching skills and attitudes before using the guide and that the materials not be used daily, but rather spaced to cover a semester at a time.
