A Comprehensive Affective-Social Educational System (CASES).
Stilwell, William E.
This Comprehensive Affective-Social Educational System (CASES) can be developed to reach five program goals: (1) identify the needs for members of each of three constituencies and for the community; (2) specify with each constituent their appropriate student, teacher and/or parent goals; (3) select optimal strategies to facilitate reaching their unique goals; (4) evaluate individual and group progress as well as program effectiveness; and (5) disseminate materials to the constituencies by way of problem prevention. The subsystems for CASES are: (1) obtaining community involvement; (2) assessing affective-social needs; (3) specifying affective-social educational goals; (4) selecting/creating program materials; (5) preparing for CASES installation; (6) implementing CASES; and (7) evaluating CASES. Advantages in the CASES approach are: (1) the overall system is developmental so that information and experience build upon each other in a recorded manner; (2) use of indigenous resources can produce many social and community system changes; (3) the system is not expensive; (4) accountability is built into the system; and (5) relationship and communications skills are developed and practiced by all participants in CASES.
