The Student's Choice. Instructor's Guide. Dropout Prevention Series.
Lankard, Bettina A.
This instructor's guide is part of a series of program materials for a school-based intervention process to help at-risk students stay in school. This instructor book, a related student book, and a videotape called "A Time of Choices" comprise the classroom component of this set of materials focusing on awareness and commitment. It addresses the concept of reaching potential, having relevant school experiences, and ensuring success through problem solving and decision making. This classroom component is intended for the middle and junior high school level. Section A: "Potential" leads students to examine and develop the attitudes, habits, and behaviors that will enable them to reach their potential for success. Section B: "Experiences" helps students to recognize the importance of basic, vocational, and employability skills and leads them to develop an educational plan for acquiring the combination of the skills that are required for work in career areas that interest them. Section C: "Success" helps students develop decision-making skills that will enable them to deal positively with conditions or situations that cause stress in their lives. Each section contains an introduction followed by subsections describing purpose, benefit, theme, components, content, use, the role of school personnel, a walk through of salient components, and preparation needed. Each section concludes with distribution to each student of one copy of "The Student's Choice" student guide. An answer guide to worksheets in the student book is included. (YLB)
