What Do You Like about Yourself? Developing A Positive Self-Concept!
Slater, Shirley; Cibrowski, Lee
This publication contains resources and activities that can be used to help elementary and secondary students and adults develop a positive self-concept. There are two major parts. Part I is intended for the teacher. Self-concept development is discussed, and how self-concept is related to teaching and learning is examined. Guidelines for selecting and using self-concept activities are presented. Hints for helping others develop a more positive self-concept are provided. Part I concludes with a list of resources. Part II, which makes up the bulk of the publication, contains the learning activities. Activities are many and varied and involve students in describing themselves, collecting items that will help others to know them better, discussing with a partner what they like about themselves, developing a personal profile, making a collage that represents them and their hobbies and interests, conducting a people scavenger hunt, completing open ended sentences, discussing case studies, role playing, and discussing "what would you do if" situations. Many of the activities can be duplicated and handed out to students. Student and teacher objectives are provided for each activity. (RM)
