The purpose of this project was to develop and test a model intermediate and junior high school program in affective education. The results of a survey of students, teachers, and parents indicated that students had poorly developed perceptions of themselves and inadequate skills in forming relationships with others. The goals of the project were to insure that: (1) students would show growth in affective development; (2) teachers would be able to assess their students' level of affective development and plan and conduct class activities to help students; and (3) staff and teachers would produce a model program. Five areas of affective development were identified: (1) self concept development; (2) valuing and decision making; (3) peer relationships; (4) academic confidence; and (5) interracial/intercultural understanding. The intermediate level materials were developed at three levels: awareness, involvement, and commitment. In the junior high program one set of materials was developed for all areas except academic confidence. Teacher and student measures were developed to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. Presentations of the project were made to professional and community groups. Recommendations were made for a more intensive study of the materials and for integration of other program activities into the regular curriculum. (Author/MC)
