Achievement Competence Training: A Curriculum for Enhancing Belief in Internal Control.
Scanlon, Robert G.; And Others
This publication contains a program outline and a workbook used in an experimental session whose objectives were to explain how ACT (Achievement Competence Training) was developed and designed from a synthesis of psychological research literature, familiarize the attendees with the methods used to develop the curriculum package; demonstrate elements of the curriculum by having the attendees participate in a subjective experience; and show the effectiveness of the materials in enhancing student's internal control. The session comprises five segments presented as a unified whole. The first segment demonstrates the importance of internal control in our society. The second section demonstrates and discusses some of the techniques used in searching, selecting, and organizing the literature relevant to training children in goal-setting and goal-attaining activities. Conceptualizing the curriculum content and building an interactive format are the next topics discussed. The final segment outlines the evaluation of an effective instructional package. (Author/DN)
