Self-Science: The Subject is Me.
Stone, Karen F.; Dillehunt, Harold Q.
Self-science is an experience-based program designed for children from the second grade through the upper elementary grades. Its aim is to equip children with affective and cognitive skills that can broaden their understanding and functioning in all learning and social situations. Students are taught to use scientific inquiry methods in studying themselves, within small-group "laboratory" situations. Special attention is given to helping students to discover their own best learning styles and study habits. The curriculum was field-tested at the Nueva Learning Center in Hillsborough, California. The course may be taught over one or two school years. It may be offered as an elective or included as a mini-course within other curriculum areas, such as language arts, social studies, or health. The program consists of 64 lessons grouped under 10 goals. The first two sections of this handbook discuss what self-science is and how to teach it. The next two sections contain 64 step-by-step lesson plans for the curriculum. Several appendices offer suggestions on classroom management, record-keeping, and evaluation. (Author/JLL)
