Moving On: Teacher Education Discussion Guide.
This guide was written for use in conjunction with the videotape "Moving On," a studio discussion and documentary film. The film attempts to create an awareness of the adjustment problems experienced by high school students who have frequently moved within or between countries. The guide provides a springboard for thinking about and discussing the problems adolescents face when adjusting to a new environment. After a brief overview of the film, the guide presents a series of discussion topics and questions focussing on fear of change, environmental adjustment, the strains that relocation places on the family, school transition, language differences, racial discrimination, academic assessment problems, and assistance that can be provided to adolescents by teachers, parents, and peers. An annotated bibliography of relevant materials is included in the guide. (MK)
