Middle School Advisement Program.
Whisler, Jo Sue; McCombs, Barbara
This document presents the McREL Middle School Advisement Program, a program designed to provide middle school students with an environment in which they can adjust to new school responsibilities and grow and develop in positive ways. The program is organized into nine modules. Within modules are activities which consist of a Teacher Guide and, for some activities, Student Activity Sheets or Student Supplements. The Orientation module provides students with an orientation to the nature of the program as nonacademic and person-oriented. The Self-Awareness module helps students gain deeper insights into who they are as individuals, their interests, values, and feelings. The Personal Responsibility module helps students gain insights into what it means to be responsible for themselves. The Goal Setting module helps students see the importance of goal setting in becoming who they want to be. The Decision Making/Problem Solving module helps students develop and refine their decision-making and problem-solving skills. The Relationships module helps students think through issues important to them in the area of relationships with family and friends. The Communications module helps students develop enhanced skills for listening to others and for positively communicating their wants and needs. The Conflict Resolution module helps students acquire some specific strategies for effectively resolving conflicts with adults and peers. Finally, the Stress Management module helps students understand effective strategies for taking control of stress-producing thoughts and reducing the level of stress they experience. (Author/NB)
