Increasing Self Concept: An Educational Perspective.
Fuller, Mary Lou
Insights Into Open Education, v16, n7, April 1984
This monograph is designed to help educators develop a better understanding of children's self-concept, the effects of children's self-concept on their school experience, and ways educators can have a positive effect on self-concept. The first section defines self-concept and presents two case studies; the second discusses factors influencing the formation of self-concept. The effects of self-concept on academic performance are presented in the third section. Suggestions for teachers are included in the fourth section, which discusses classroom environment, positive feedback, success, and "treating yourself good" for the good of children. A sample plan of action also is included. The fifth section contains a series of helpful ideas and lists of books, filmstrips, games, posters, and other educational materials. Appended are author information and a subscription form for the monograph series. (BJD)
