STAR System.
Doverspike, James E.
The STAR System is a developmental guidance approach to be used with elementary school children in the 5th or 6th grades. Two basic purposes underlie STAR: to increase learning potential and to enhance personal growth and development. STAR refers to 4 basic skills: sensory, thinking, adapting, and revising. Major components of the 4 skills are: (1) Sensing--observation and listening; (2) Thinking--goal setting, planning, weighing and choosing; (3) Adapting--try out, examination and judgment; and (4) Revising--readapting and comparing. Elements related to the use of STAR which are now under study include: group size, co-leadership, age level, materials and methods to be used and number of sessions required. (Author)
