Let's Talk Independence: A Curriculum for Teaching Communication Skills. Group Leader's Guide.
Ansell, Dorothy I.; Griffin, William V.
Intended to help young people acquire independent daily living skills, this book is the group leader's guide to an advanced youth training curriculum for developing appropriate communication competence. The guide's first session introduces the basics of communication, while subsequent sessions focus on communication in all aspects of life: on the job, with family, in the community, during leisure time activities, with friends, in the marketplace, and at home. Intended for use in a group setting and by youths who have already completed a more basic curriculum on independent living, the guide provides many opportunities for youth to practice communication skills such as getting along with a roommate, approaching a landlord with a problem, dealing with criticism on the job, and negotiating with a car dealer. The group leader's guide organizes activities by one-hour sessions, with specific objectives identified at the beginning of each one, activities described in detail, and instructions and handouts. A 22-item list of resources on program development, youth training materials, and supplemental materials concludes the guide. (SR)
