Moving Out into the World: Student Values, Choices, and Relationships.
Turk, Blossom M.; Jacobs, Marjorie L.
This book provides adolescents the information and skills they need to deal with dating and their awakening sexuality. It offers students in middle school, high school, and college an opportunity to examine and discuss their own feelings, attitudes, and behaviors as they relate to relationships. To allow facilitators in family life education courses maximum control of course content, teacher guides for each lesson include a rationale, suggested objectives, activities, and assessment strategies. When appropriate, data are provided to assist in developing minilectures. Worksheet and assessment activities have also been designed to meet the diverse learning styles of students. Each reproducible student worksheet is written to stand alone to allow teachers the option to select those worksheets that are compatible with their teaching objectives and community values. The book is divided into five parts. In part one, students explore their values, standards, and attitudes. Communication skills needed to resolve parent/adolescent conflicts are addressed in part two, while part three focuses on the dating decisions that confront all teenagers. Part four includes information and worksheet exercises that address significant issues surrounding dating and sexual issues. Part five discusses sexual exploitations. Contains 51 references. (RJM)
