Priest, Delma L.
Implemented in an elementary school with a majority of Hispanicc students in a low-income community of a large midwest city, this practicum aimed to aid primary grade teachers understand the importance of self-esteem in the development of primary grade students. Practicum goals were to: (1) provide teachers with information about self-esteem to help them better understand the importance of their role; (2) provide practical information enabling teachers to demonstrate skills in fostering children's positive self-esteem; and (3) provide teachers with information to increase their knowledge of the developmental state and cognitive levels of primary grade children. To attain these goals, 10 training sessions were implemented, a teacher handbook and a children's activity book were produced, and recommended literature for children and teachers were indentified. Evaluation data demonstrated the success of the intervention. Related materials, such as measures employed, lists of positive comments and messages, and outlines of training sessions are appended.
