The teacher's guide to the "Carrascolendas 500 Series," a bilingual (Spanish/English) television program geared toward encouraging affective learning in 6- to 9-year-olds, provides information about the main points made in each of the 39 programs in the series. It gives teachers general tips on how to use the series to explore important issues with their students and suggests specific activities geared to the content of each program. The five constructs emphasized by Carrascolendas 500 are: (1) growth toward self-esteem; (2) concern for others as a source of self-esteem; (3) respect for and preservation of natural resources; (4) diversity in self and others; (5) existence of inner choice. Within each theme, a number of concepts are presented to help young children develop the attitudes and values that can help them grow as individuals in a bilingual, multicultural society. (SR)
