The supplement describes instructional alternatives for a curriculum module addressing stress reduction for rural teachers of special education. Designed to help teach the personal survival and development skills that special education teachers need to live and work in rural communities, the module helps teachers understand stress and its potential effects on their professional performance; understand the interacting cognitive, affective, and physiological aspects of stress; explore stress reduction techniques; and begin to develop a personalized master plan for stress reduction. The supplement describes the instructor's major tasks when teaching the module and the necessary preparation for teaching the classes. Organized similarly to the student text, the supplement indicates the major points and explains primary and alternative activities for each section. The supplement includes 12 transparency masters for the module and a list of optional reading and supplemental materials. (SB)
