Project C.L.A.S.S.: Classroom Learning to Attain Social Skills. Teacher Handbook [and] Parent Guide [and] Facilitator Handbook.
Hoagland, Carol; And Others
Designed for students in grades K-3, the program focuses on nurturing individual student growth through sequential class activities that stimulate a positive social climate within the classroom. Based on group process and child development research, the teacher's handbook focuses on skills in the areas of friendship, communication, and cooperation. Basic to the project are regularly scheduled, weekly activities which emphasize positive student behaviors and interactions. Graded lesson plans state the goals for the activity, materials to be used in conducting the lesson, and step-by-step directions. An accompanying parent guide includes masters for monthly parent newsletters (which sequentially correspond to the activities), and a guide for a four-week parent education course. In addition, a facilitator's guide provides an outline for a one-day preservice workshop and a one-day mid-year inservice workshop. Appendices include games and simulations, teacher logs, supplemental materials, and a bibliography. (LH)
