Mental Health and the Curriculum
Ediger, Marlow
Journal of Instructional Psychology, v35 n1 p38-42 Mar 2008
The whole student needs to be developed in the curriculum. Teaching and learning situations must reflect quality knowledge, skills, and attitudinal objectives of instruction. Each of these categories is important and the latter should not be minimized. Quality attitudes assist students to achieve more optimally in the knowledge and skills domains. They also help learners to get along well with others. Sometimes, students do well in knowledge and skills achievement but fail to work effectively in a group situation. Later at the work place, individuals have lost jobs due to not getting along. They have shown patterns of rude behaviors along with being haughty, mean, and brutish in relating to others. It behooves the teacher to plan objectives, learning activities, and appraisal procedures that guide quality learner behavior.
