Dunne, Faith; And Others
Designed to last approximately 12 days, Unit III of the 4-unit life planning and career development curriculum for rural high school students focuses on skills application. Through experience simulation, students apply skills learned in Unit II to the information from Unit I; they project their future lives and simulate their responses to problems that might stand in the way of self-realization. The unit concentrates on a simulation game, "The Game of Life: Choice and Chance," and a Learning Activity Package on assessment skills. The game is based on life stages and the role of choice and chance at each stage. The game packet, included with Unit III, contains monitor's instructions, a list of "identities," chance and consequence sheets for the various life stages, instructions for scoring life's "satisfaction points," and five game boards. Unit III also includes a teacher's guide, learning objectives, 10 complete lesson plans, an appendix of additional teaching tips and student activities, and an adaptation manual designed to help school personnel tailor the program to a particular area. The field-tested curriculum is designed for the rural Midwest, but detailed adaptation manuals are available for the Northwest, Southwest, Northeast, and Appalachian South. (SB)
