Value Talk: Helping Children Grow. A Workshop Presentation.
The presentation described in this booklet provides the teacher with knowledge needed to help children achieve positive emotional and intellectual growth. It explains how to engage children in talk/dialogue that will help them make profitable choices; choose healthy emotions; overcome anger, anxiety and worry; learn to control their thoughts; and retain the natural contentment that belongs to many. Among the topics discussed are children's development of values, appropriate modeling behaviors for sending messages, and the use of labels, commands, and questions to address to children. Included are exercises to help develop the values teachers and parents want children to model and later verbalize. (HOD)
