TIPS: Crime Resistance Strategies, 2. Teaching Individuals Protective Strategies, Teaching Individuals Positive Solutions.
Bass, Martha; And Others
This curriculum guide is the second-grade component of a teacher-developed K-eighth grade program on crime resistance. Major objectives of the program are to help teachers promote and maintain positive student attitudes and behavior, assist students in meeting their responsibilities, and help students insure their own and other people's safety and welfare. Specific objectives of this component are to help second-grade students compare feelings and emotions, learn varying job responsibilities, investigate causes and consequences of conflict, investigate the necessity of rules and the concept of authority, learn the duties of a police officer, deal with strangers, use the telephone for safety, and extend their knowledge of home security methods. To meet these objectives, students are involved in a wide variety of activities, including discussing different feelings, providing various endings for incomplete sentences about feelings, creating home and school responsibility charts, participating in small-group conflict resolution situations, creating and wearing badges extolling responsibility, distinguishing between pleasant and conflict-causing statements, writing and illustrating stories about preferred actions in specific situations, role-playing police officers and criminals, filling in blanks in sentences about school safety, discussing concepts such as conflict and authority, and reviewing knowledge about strangers. For each activity, information is presented on objectives, materials, procedures, teacher background, and reinforcement questions. Student worksheets are provided wherever necessary and blank spaces are included for teacher's notes at the end of each activity. The unit concludes with a student reading list, a resource directory, and a glossary of terms. (DB)
