Me and My Feelings: Pattern of Healthful Living, Level 1. A Values Curriculum, Second Revision.
This curriculum guide for first-grade teachers contains values-based classroom lessons which are designed to assist students in the development of a positive self-concept, rational thinking processes, and a personal and societal value system. Teaching techniques include puppet shows, story telling, class discussion, use of filmstrips, and role playing. Lessons provided include the following: Who Am I, Looks and Feelings, Asking Permission, Misunderstanding, Borrowing, Truthfulness, Responsibility, Honesty, Cleanliness, and Respect for Power. Each unit outline provides purpose, concepts, affective objectives, class activities, teaching procedures, guiding questions, evaluation techniques, and lists of materials needed. In many cases the classroom stories are included. The appendices contain procedures for role playing and group discussion, basic puppet instructions and patterns, and a resource list of curricula. 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.
