Hart, Susan J.
This curriculum guide provides high school students with specific tools to develop insights, attitudes and life skills they need to meet life's challenges and covers critical health and family life topics. It is part of a series designed to provide educators with the curricular tools necessary to challenge students to take personal responsibility for their health. This culturally sensitive curriculum unit presents seven lessons full of engaging activities that focus on self-awareness, personal definitions of success, managing stress, positive self-talk, time management and building supportive relationships. The concise and easy-to-follow lessons are supported by complete teacher background information and concrete objectives. This document: (1) shows students practical ways to manage everyday stress; (2) emphasizes the physical and emotional well-being necessary to adapt to life changes; (3) introduces time management skills for living more successfully in today's complex world; and (4) focuses on the importance of self-worth and personal power. Each lesson includes information on the lesson objectives; class time required; a brief overview of the topic; instructional strategies, including brainstorming, class discussion, group discussion, oral presentations, overhead transparencies, case studies, mini-lecture and worksheets; teacher materials and preparation; procedures; homework; evaluation materials; and a concluding activity.
