A Plan for a Life Skills Course for Northern Adolescents.
Gryba, Eugene S.; Kyba, Russel
Based upon the philosophy and techniques of a life skills course for adults, this program guide specifies the life skills problems faced by northern adolescents, the lessons needed to confront these problems, and some of the benefits that would accrue to the students who may take the course. In addition, an attempt is made to anticipate negative community reaction, to discuss some of the administrative problems resulting from program implementation, and to provide additional training that teacher-coaches would require in order to effectively carry out a life skills course. Course specification tables provide a description of adolescent problems, cross-reference to the adult lessons, suggestions for modifications to existing lessons or for writing new lessons, and benefits that a student could gain from each lesson. A sample lesson plan containing an overview, objectives, teaching suggestions, needed equipment, and evaluation methods is included.
