Life Skills for Mental Health Consumer Evaluation Panel Report.
Martinson, Linda; And Others
In an effort to evaluate the effectiveness of the Georgia Life Skills for Mental Health Leader's Guides, a panel of 13 teachers who had used the materials was assembled. The panel members filled out extensive questionnaires assessing the educational value, communicability, motivational value, utility and format of the Guides, whose purpose is to help children from 5 to 18 cope with stress, handle major life decisions, and form more satisfying interpersonal relationships. In general, teacher's responses indicated that the Guides were very valuable as teaching instruments. Some of their suggestions for improvement were incorporating the Guides into a teacher training workshop; giving them a key topic index; and expanding the activities to include more appropriate ones for kindergarten and first grade. The complete set of evaluative materials used, including tabulated results, comprises the bulk of the document. (Author/BP)
