Kids Helping Kids.
Pugh, Don; Thompson, Lou
Because good self-concept among children is closely linked to successful learning, an Australian school developed a school-wide program to raise children's self-esteem. The project focused on working with autistic children and a relay cycle and run between Perth and Adelaide. This paper details the process of developing and carrying out the project. The preface gives the background for the program. Topics covered in the body of the paper include: (1) the introduction of the relay in 1983; (2) planning; (3) sponsorship; (4) organization; (5) curriculum planning; (6) the cycle; (7) the run; (8) the grand finale; (9) outcomes; and (10) conclusion. Each step of the process, from the original idea for the program on, is covered in detail. Failures as well as successes are described. A bibliography is included, as well as appendices which cover the results from a self-concept inventory administered before and after the program. These results indicate substantial improvement in students' self-esteem. (IS)
