This curriculum guide provides instruction in assertive skills, personality types, and relaxation techniques for sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students. Is is especially intended to increase the social skills of shy, withdrawn students; but it may be used with any students who demonstrate deficits in social skills. The guide contains 50 lessons which: (1) teach students how to deal with others in a successful, productive manner; (2) provide them with an awareness of personal differences; and (3) give them tools to reduce personal stress. Each lesson includes: title, goal, lesson overview, materials, procedure, transfer activity, behavioral objectives, and follow-up. The guide may be used in the classroom, in advisement groups, and/or in small-group counseling sessions. The lessons offer many experiential activities and role-playing situations. A glossary of terms used in the guide and a six-item bibliography of references are included. (DC)
