You and Your Friends. A Teacher's Guide [and] A Student Notebook. Revised.
Barrs, Steve; And Others
The teacher's guide presents a set of seven lessons designed to help students understand friendship and peer relationships. The lessons focus on: (1) the desire to feel loved and accepted; (2) behaviors designed to gain acceptance from others; (3) ways that other people may use one's need for acceptance to influence one's behavior; (4) the possibility of not being accepted, regardless of one's behavior; (5) the difference between being truly accepted and being accepted only because of one's behavior; (6) the importance of one's choice of friends; and (7) being one's own best friend and accepting oneself. The student notebook allows students the opportunity to provide written responses to activities and scenarios presented in each of the lessons. Students are encouraged to evaluate the actions of characters in scenarios; to evaluate their own actions and behaviors; to understand when and how they are being influenced by others to behave in certain ways; and to weigh the consequences of their actions.
