SAGE: Self-Awareness Growth Experiences. Strategies That Promote Positive Self-Esteem for Grades 7-12. Revised/Updated.
Kehayan, V. Alex
This guide is intended to facilitate the personal and social development of students in 7th through 12th grades. A suggested program cycle is described which includes these parts: assess needs; select goals; select objectives; select strategies; implement program; reassess needs; reflect; and begin new cycle. The guide is divided into sections focusing on eight goals. These goals are included: (1) to increase self-awareness; (2) to develop self-esteem; (3) to improve social interaction skills; (4) to develop problem-solving and decision-making skills; (5) to improve coping ability; (6) to develop ethical standards; (7) to develop independent functioning; and (8) to develop creativity. Within each goal objectives and strategies are described. Objectives range from relating positively to new people to tolerating competition within and between groups. Over 100 strategies are listed for the 7 goals. Each section on an individual objective includes a resource activities list which lists specific exercises from sources other than this guide. An appendix lists the sources for these activities and includes the addresses of publishers and distributors. A feedback form, list of publishers and distributors of commercial assessment instruments, and a discussion of the historical background of personal growth education are included in the appendix.
