Me and My World: Pattern of Healthful Living, Level 2. A Values Curriculum, Second Revision.
This curriculum guide for second-grade teachers contains values-based classroom lessons which are intended to assist students in the development of a positive self-concept and a personal and societal value system. Teaching techniques include story readings, classroom discussion, use of study prints and filmstrips, making posters, and role playing. The units treat the following topics: My Name, Being Myself, People are Different, My Emotions, Teasing, Property Ownership, Fear, Being Fair, Cheating, My Strengths and Weaknesses, Disagreements, Generosity, Respect for Property, Anger, Truthfulness, and Respect for Authority. Each unit outline contains purpose, affective objectives, concepts, classroom activities, guiding questions, teaching procedures, evaluation techniques, and lists of materials needed. Appendices include transparencies needed for the units 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.
