Life-Coping Skills. Preliminary Report.
Agency for Instructional Television, Bloomington, IN.
A preliminary report on an educational program "Inside/Out", dealing with life-coping skills is presented. In Part I, life-coping skills are defined as the affective, cognitive, and psychomotor skills useful for dealing with life's problems and whose continuing acquisition promotes individual growth. An historical perspective reviews the study and teaching of these skills, examines relevant research and theoretical positions, and presents information on the use of television and other media in teaching these skills, lastly, the complexity of a life-coping skills curriculum is cited as necessitating a series of curriculum projects as opposed to one massive effort. It is therefore recommended that a prospectus be prepared for another level of the "Inside/Out" series in life-coping skills education. In Part II, the recommendation is made for a new television series similar to "Inside/Out" and consisting of 15 programs for children aged 11 to 13. This series would stress the major individual and interpersonal concerns of early adolescence and would include the development of support material for teachers. (Author/PB)
