Affective Education: A Teacher's Manual to Promote Student Self-Actualization and Human Relations Skills.
Snyder, Thomas R.
This teacher's manual presents affective education as a program to promote student self-actualization and human relations skills. Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs and Erik Erikson's life stages of psychosocial development form the conceptual base for this program. The goals and objectives of this manual are concerned with problem-solving behavior, conflict management, positive self-concept and identity. The program presented is designed to operate once each week for at least 45 minutes for one school year. There are 36 separate lesson plans. The material can be utilized in secondary or postsecondary programs and integrated into the curriculum of many areas of study, e.g., health education, social sciences, or psychology. The six sections presented in this manual are: Program Introduction and Set-Up, Group Processes, Problem Solving, Self-Concept, Human Relations, and Personal Growth. Also included is information dealing with the skills, attitudes, knowledge, and resources needed to develop and modify activities to support a total affective education program. The manual provides a total program evaluation instrument and evaluation criteria. (Author)
