The volume highlights barriers to implementing curriculum integration inside the classroom and at the school level.

When the kids come first : enhancing self esteem by James A Beane( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph promotes the enhancement of self-esteem as a basic responsibility of middle level schools. Chapter 1 makes a case for the importance of self-perception, and describes a rationale specifically focused on early adolescents that is based on history, contemporary issues, and research. Chapter 2 analyzes changes in the adolescent's self-perception. Unpredictable changes in the intellectual, feeling, and physical domains mandate the adolescent to undertake a re-thinking of self-perceptions in all dimensions at this age. Chapter 3 looks at the structures which define and regulate day-to-day life in the school. These institutional features include such things as climate, decision-making processes, rules and regulations, reward and punishment systems, grouping, relations with the outside world, and morale. It is noted that the way in which these features are planned or carried out may contribute to positive self-perceptions or they may debilitate self-worth. Chapter 4 considers two phases of planning to enhance self-perceptions. One involves ideas for various components in teaching and learning situations. The other is a brief description of premium teaching procedures and programs. Appendices include an illustrative unit, issues from the perspective of seventh graders, and self-assessment checklists.
