An analysis of how and why people behave toward each other as they do is the focus of this quinmester, elective course for grades 10 through 12. It includes group dynamics, ways of communicating with people effectively, problems of interpersonal relationships, conflict and adjustment, value systems, prejudice, and decision making on a group and individual basis. Some of the course goals are for students to generalize that: 1) human beings are in all ways similar and in all ways unique; 2) all human beings experience conflict and adjustment; 3) prejudice, preconception, and ignorance of other people tend to generate fear and hatred; 4) group cooperation generally facilitates problem solving; and, 5) it would be a gift if we could see ourselves as others see us. The guide is divided into a broad goals section, a content outline, objectives and learning activities, and required and supplementary resources for teacher and student. Learning activities include experiences in self revelation, simulation games, small and large group discussions, and role playing.
