A Celebration of Learning.
Lethbridge Catholic Separate School District #9 (Alberta).
This booklet contains materials designed to help teachers and students identify and celebrate affective learning as it is expressed in behavior. First, a brief user's guide explains how teachers and students can use the "Celebration of Learning" materials. Next, five areas of affective learning are listed, with general and specific examples of behaviors that demonstrate learning in those areas. The five areas are: (1) self-worth, which is evident if the student takes risks, assumes responsibility, and perseveres in developing talents; (2) relationships with others, in which development is evident in consideration and respect for authority, appreciation of the accomplishments of others, and respect for others' rights, ideas, and property; (3) world awareness, which is shown by a belief in the value of citizenship and commitment to social justice; (4) learning, in which growth is evidenced by a desire to search for truth, self-motivation, and intellectual curiosity; and (5) spiritual life, in which learning is evident if the student exemplifies hope, trust, and purpose in life. The booklet also contains self-assessment instruments for grades 1-3 for each of the areas; a teacher checklist for recording student behaviors; a self-assessment instrument for grades 4-6; a list of 15 ways in which teachers can help students learn; and Good News Notes to report learning behavior to parents.
