Valuing [And] Figures Book for Valuing [And] Exercise Book for Valuing: A Discussion Guide for Participants in Project SEARCH.
Abbey, D. S.
Designed for the participants in the Project SEARCH curriculum development project, this discussion guide describes the process of valuing through a group experience activity. The guide is designed to be used by people who might not know one another previously. As a group, participants view the process of valuing abstractly and also act out how the process can be applied to daily activity. Six basic steps include the recognition of need for choice, identification of alternatives, analysis of alternatives in the light of consequences, free choice among alternatives, internalization of behavior, and reevaluation of chosen alternatives in light of new experiences. The discussion guide uses a programed learning format and takes from six to eight hours to complete. Participants role-play students at various age levels in order to understand how to create a climate for the valuing process as well as to apply the process. (DE)
