School Survival Skills: A Guide for Teachers. Working Draft.
Adelman, Margaret J.; Emslie, Jean M.
The working draft of the teaching guide is intended for use with secondary students with learning and behavior problems and focuses on the development of three school coping skill areas: behavior control, teacher pleasing behaviors, and study skills. Each area is divided into teaching components with terminal objectives and related instructional activities. Within each area the components are arranged progressively. After an introduction and guidelines for implementation, the approach to instruction is outlined for the three stages of demonstration, practice and mastery, and generalization. Briefly considered is continuous assessment of student needs. Behavior control skill components are charted and include behavior awareness, behavior consequences, impact of behavior options, behavior change, practicing change, and exerting control. Teacher pleasing behaviors cover the areas of rules, behavior awareness, appropriate behaviors, behavior change, using teacher pleasing behaviors, and improving teacher pleasing behaviors. The study skills area includes organizing assignments and study time, using directions, developing listening skills for remembering information from lectures, locating information in a text, taking notes from a text, preparing for tests, and taking tests. Charts for group and individual recordkeeping are provided. Fourteen case samples are given. Lesson plans are included for all components and are organized according to objectives, demonstration activities, practice activities, generalization activities, rationale, individual observations, group effectiveness, and followup. Sample student worksheets are included for some lessons. (DB)
