Pregnant and Parenting Adolescents: Alternatives for Developing School-Based Programs and Services.
Glosson, Linda R.; Lytle, Jacque R.
This guide suggests ways to develop and implement school-based programs and services for pregnant and parenting adolescents. The guide is organized in 10 sections. The first section summarizes the problem of teen parenthood, with information on the causes and the consequences of early pregnancy. In the second section, teen parents' needs for services are explored, and information on planning programs to meet those needs is provided. A curriculum for educating teen parents on pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting skills makes up the third section of the guide. The fourth section provides information on program evaluation. The fifth through ninth sections cover various resources: community resources, financial assistance, social services, medical aid, and public information and education. The final section lists resources (research articles, books and reports, books for adolescents, curriculum guides, pamphlets, and audiovisuals). (KC)
