McMinimee, Sharon; Kreps, Alice Roelofs
One of twenty course guides in the Community Living Skills Guide for the College of Living series, this document provides guidelines and workbook activities for the course, Understanding Oneself: Getting to Know Me. The series of courses for developmentally disabled adults is intended to supplement residential programs and to aid in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. Objectives/goals include providing students with opportunities to learn about, explore and understand certain concepts which correspond to the eight steps in the course: Body Awareness, Body Concept, I Am Me, Sensory Perception, Physical Fitness, Emotions, Creativity, Values, and Social Skills. Contents include a pre- posttest (a biography) and these materials for each"step": general and specific objectives, class activities, and handouts (exercises). A vocabulary list is also provided. Other guides in the series and related documents (a volunteer training workshop packet and curriculum guide for fourteen courses) are available separately. (See note.) (YLB)
