Holistic Goal Attainment To Increase Levels of Self-Help. Teacher's Guide and Learner's Manual.
This guide demonstrates a holistic approach to goal attainment in adult education, welfare, and work force program. Holistic goal attainment treats the roots of illiteracy, measuring impact on learning and job readiness that increases teachable/reachable moments for instructors and builds self-esteem within the learner. The teacher's guide contains eight steps designed for the use of holistic goal attainment to increase levels of self-help. Many of the steps contain "reflections," or notes. The learner's manual contains a diagram and checklists stated in everyday language that enable learners to assess their attitude, word usage, and behavior. It contains the "What's Happening Grid," profiles of learners, and continuum scales (depressed, anxious, warrior, and indigent). The chart, "My Goals that Keep Me On Track," serves as a working model to follow in setting goals. Learners are helped to recognize and use problem-solving techniques. Ten references are included.
