Crabtree, Myrna P.; Watkins, Alice B.
These 11 modules for incarcerated youth and adults are intended as small group and individualized instructional materials for social education on personal, family, and resource management. Each module has the following components: introduction and instructions; a list of terms; objectives, related activities, and a list of resources needed to complete the activities; a list of student resources; and appendixes. The appendixes include pre- and posttests, information sheets, worksheets, checklists, rating sheets, and answer keys to the pre- and posttests. Modules are divided into three areas. Personal Development and Care contains five modules on building a positive self concept, daily body care, projecting one's best image, goal setting, and building bridges between life during incarceration and after returning to the community. Family Life and Relationships contains two modules on communicating with children and disciplining children. Consumer and Money Management contains four modules on making decisions, planning a budget, planning for savings, and methods of saving money. (YLB)
