Individualized Instruction in Family Living: Information for Professionals; Where Can Students Get the Answers?; Biographical Unipac Listing.
Turner Unified School District 202, Kansas City, KS.
Through a series of sequential statements, the booklet reconstructs the development of the Individualized Instruction in Family Living Project. Intended for elementary and secondary level students, the project's main objectives are: (1) to improve student self-image and understanding; (2) to acquaint students with value clarification; and (3) to teach goal setting techniques. The program, designed by a group of professionals and interested citizens, consists of the development of classroom curriculum materials, analyzed and developed by educators, and the establishment of a teacher training program. A survey of teachers, parents, and students determines questions to which students need answers. Information which answers these questions is arranged into individualized programs and packages called unipacs, which are made available to school and community. In an effort to share with others what they have learned, the project developers will visit and consult with individual school districts. Several available publications which treat the project are listed. The titles of the 29 unipacs with designated grade level are also listed. (Author/RM)
