Reese, Mary Jane
This curriculum guide for seventh-grade teachers contains values-based classroom lessons which are intended to assist students in the development of (1) a positive self-concept, (2) rational thinking processes, (3) inter- and intrapersonal skills necessary for individual and group effectiveness, and (4) a personal and societal value system. Teaching techniques include classroom readings, group discussions, use of filmstrips, problem solving, and decision making. Lessons provided include the following: Self Inventory, Advertising and You, Frame of Reference, Influences, Understanding, Responsibility, Alcohol Decisions, Rules, Going Along, Decisions, Wanting a Bicycle, Opinions, Not What It Seems, Handling Emotions, Conflicts, and Your Interpretation. Each lesson outline contains purpose, concepts, affective objectives, classroom activities, specific teaching procedures, guiding questions, evaluation techniques, and lists of materials needed. The curriculum developers recommend that teachers receive training in affective teaching skills and attitudes before using the guide and that the materials not be used daily, but rather spaced to cover a semester at a time.
