Kister, Joanna; And Others
This Personal Development Resource Guide is intended to help teachers implement Ohio's Work and Family Life Program. Course content focuses on the practical problems faced by adolescents at the critical stage of their development. These practical problems are posed through case studies and shared experiences and examined using critical questions that lead to ethical decisions and reasoned action. The guide provides teachers an overview of the course content (practical problem, process competency or competency, competency builders, supporting concepts), teacher background information and references, learning activities, and assessment ideas (paper and pencil, classroom experience, application to real-life setting). All handouts are provided. The guide includes one teaching module for each process competency and each content competency in the Personal Development and Process Competency units of Ohio's Competency Analysis Profile. Four process modules cover these topics: managing work and family responsibilities, solving personal and family problems, relating to others, and assuming a leadership role as a responsible citizen. Nine content modules cover the following: enhancing personal development, enhancing self-esteem, managing stress, achieving career goals, forming family relationship, form peer relationships, managing conflict, expressing sexuality responsibly, and parenting responsibly.
