The Development of Instructional Materials on Managerial Skills for Pregnant Teenagers. Final Report.
Gentzler, Yvonne S.; And Others
Described in this document is a 1-year project that developed instructional materials to be used in public schools to educate pregnant teenagers in life management skills. During the project, an advisory committee composed of a home economics teacher, personnel from existing programs for pregnant teenagers, and young mothers who are heads of households was formed to develop the materials. The materials were field tested with a sample group of pregnant teenagers. The curriculum materials, "Choices for Young Parents," make up most of this document. The materials contain self-study sheets covering the following topics: changes, attitudes, caring (interpersonal relationship), goal setting, parenthood, assertiveness, continued education, stress management, financial management, decision making, and social agencies. Also included is a teacher's packet consisting of an annotated list of 33 sources for additional instructional materials and short descriptions of 26 programs for pregnant adolescents. A bibliography lists 150 references. (KC)
