A Process for Group Action: Pattern of Healthful Living, Level 5. A Values Curriculum, Second Revision.
This curriculum guide for fifth-grade teachers contains values-based classroom lessons on the topic of group action. The lessons 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 use of transparencies and filmstrips and classroom discussion with an emphasis on group processes and interaction. Units presented include the following: A Discussion without the Teacher Nearby, The Development of Policy Statement, and Redevelopment and Continued Independence. Each unit outline contains purpose, concepts, affective objectives, classroom activities, teaching procedures, guiding questions, evaluation techniques, and lists of materials needed. For some lessons all necessary classroom materials are included. Appendices include procedures for group discussion and role playing 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.
