Getting It All Together: Pattern of Healthful Living, Level 6. A Values Curriculum, Second Revision.
This curriculum guide for sixth-grade teachers contains values-based classroom lessons which are intended to assist students in the development of (1) a positive self-concept, (2) rational thinking processes, (3) inter- and intrapersonal skills necessary for individual and group effectiveness, and (4) a personal and societal value system. Teaching techniques include classroom discussion, creation and analyses of collages, problem solving, use of filmstrips, role playing, and worksheets. Themes treated in the lessons include: personal values, roles, dependability, decision making, responsibility, honesty, loyalty, prejudice, friendship, resentment, relocation, conflict, and well-being. Each lesson outline contains purpose, concepts, affective objectives, classroom activities, specific teaching procedures, guiding questions, evaluation techniques, and lists of materials needed. For some lessons all necessary classroom materials are included. A bibliography of curricula for use in the lessons is provided. 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.
