Teacher Resource Guide for the Development of Positive Self-Concept in Migrant Children.
MACRO Educational Associates, Inc., Buffalo, NY.
Without a positive self-concept and feeling of worth, little will be accomplished in the migrant child's intellectual and psychological development. Educators must recognize this fact and realize that in order for the schools to succeed for migrants, the first priority must be given to instilling in migrant children a valuation of self. This resource guide brings together some materials, methods, research studies and other relevant items pertaining to the development of positive self-concepts in migrant children of both preschool and primary school age. Included is a review of research studies dealing with the development of self-concept; the migrant child's strengths; and the transiency of the migrant experience, family cohesion, and the way that school is perceived and their effects on self-concept. The typical characteristics of both high and low self-concept children are described and translated into a set of illustrative behavioral objectives for both pupils and teachers aimed at developing positive self-concepts. Various methods and materials used by educators, parents, and others in building positive self-concepts are discussed. Also given are a listing of 18 films and 10 books written for preschool and primary school children, a 284-item bibliography of literature on self-concept, an annotated bibliography of 20 books and records dealing with the self and body image, and the addresses of 108 individuals and agencies that assisted in collecting data relative to methods and materials used for developing positive self-concept in migrant children.
