Five "R's" for Middle School. Strategies for Teaching Affective Education in the Schools.
Brown, Faith
This monograph offers a rationale for including affective programs in middle schools and outlines one such program. This "homeroom program" is based on the generally accepted idea that young adolescents need to develop emotionally and socially as well as intellectually. These students have a need to understand themselves and others and to learn to interact with their peers as well as with their parents and teachers. This program is different from the traditional homeroom that meets only occasionally to carry out routine school business. It is, instead, a period of structured time, (ideally every day) into which are built activities that stress the development of more effective interpersonal skills. The mechanics of developing such a program are discussed, and the roles of participants (teachers, administrators, counselors, students, and parents) are described. Ways of implementing the program are presented. (JD)
