Carrascolendas: Teacher's Guide. 600 Series.
KLRN/KLRU-TV, Austin, TX.
This document, the first of two teacher's guides to the "Carrascolendas 600 Series," presents general information about the objectives of a bilingual (Spanish/English) television program geared toward encouraging affective learning in 6- to 9-year-olds (i.e., the focus is not on teaching language skills, but on children's feelings, interests, needs, attitudes, and values). In the introduction, the content of the series is reviewed, and the program's approach is discussed. A detailed description of the program's characters is also provided. The guide's main body contains three sections. Section 1 (Concepts, Culture, and Comedy) describes the curriculum concepts covered in the programs. Section 2 (Dealings with Feelings) covers in detail the series' way of addressing three concerns: concern about self-image, concern about "connectedness," and concern about control over one's life. Section 3 discusses "see-and-do behavior" where examples of desirable behavior are illustrated by segments from the series. (SR)
