A Resource Manual for the Development and Evaluation of Special Programs for Exceptional Students. Volume V-C: Affective Curriculum for Secondary Emotionally Handicapped Students.
Orange County Public Schools, Orlando, FL.
The manual presents a curriculum designed for use with emotionally disturbed adolescents. The curriculum is designed to help students learn skills needed to behave in a socially competent manner and to provide teachers with a systematic approach to their instruction. The curriculum consists of four units (self control, problem solving, communication, and behavioral interactions). Each unit is further broken down into 18 skill units and activity lessons designed to accompany the skill units. The unit on social problem solving is seen to be at the core of the curriculum, with self control a necessary prelude. Communication and behavioral interaction units are viewed as ancillary aspects of social problem solving. Skill lessons follow a specified format, with information on objectives, introductory guidelines for the teacher, a review of the previous lesson, a discussion of new ideas and skills, opportunities for practicing the new skill with feedback and using the teacher or other students as models. Summary and assignment information concludes each skill unit. The first 14 skill lessons of each unit are followed by activities designed to provide extra practice in a new setting. Among appended information are sample parent newsletters and guidelines for staff development. (CL)
