It's Your Life...Take Charge = Es Tu Vida...Toma Control. User's Guide and Student Workbook. Dropout Prevention Series.
Veach, June P.
These materials and a related videotape are intended to respond to the need to heighten at-risk students' awareness of factors involved in dropping out, of the need for staying in school, and of a process for making choices. The user's guide (in English only) discusses student level, makes suggestions for using the videotape and student booklet interactively, offers suggestions for additional reading, and recommends additional resources. The videotape focuses on profiles of four students who dropped out of school. It includes characteristics of dropouts and factors related to dropping out of school in terms of the outlook for students' futures. An at-risk student who decided not to drop out is also profiled. The student workbook guides students through a process for making reasoned choices about school. It encourages them to take charge of their lives rather than let things happen to them that might lead to dropping out of school. Both English and Spanish versions of the student workbook are provided. (YLB)
