Learning to Live with Others: Pattern of Healthful Living, Level 3. A Values Curriculum, Second Revision.
This curriculum guide for third-grade teachers contains values-based classroom lessons which are intended to assist students in the development of a positive self-concept and inter- and intrapersonal skills necessary for individual and group effectiveness. Teaching techniques include group dynamics, classroom discussion, use of filmstrips and study prints, pantomimes, role playing, and the solving of dilemmas. Topics treated in the lessons include the following: Getting to Know You, Guess Who's in a Group, What Groups Do I Belong to at School, How Does It Feel to Be Left out, We Are All Alike and Different, Cheating, and Your Folks Won's Mind. Each lesson outline contains purpose, concepts, affective objectives, classroom activities, teaching procedures, guiding questions, evaluation techniques, and lists of materials needed. Appendices include procedures for group discussion and role playing, a bibliography of values reference materials, 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.
