A Personal Adjustment Curriculum for Secondary Behaviorally Disordered Students.
Houchens, Cora J.
A curriculum in affective education was developed for learning disabled and emotionally impaired high school students. The initial course in the curriculum was one on personal growth (in which students were encouraged to become more aware of identity, competencies, preferences, influences, and body). Objectives were written for three major subject areas within this topic: identity, interpersonal relationships, and values. Lesson plans were developed to include music as an approach to helping students understand and express their feelings. Evaluations of the course revealed increases in self-concept and in communication skills. The course eventually was expanded into a 2-part course for secondary behavior disordered students. (CL)
