Group Guidance Activities for Alabama Elementary Schools (K-6). Bulletin No. 72.
Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery.
This series of group guidance activities for kindergarten through sixth grade teaches concepts based upon essential skills for students included in "Guidance and Counseling State Plan for Excellence in Alabama Public Schools" (Bulletin 1984, No. 39) (The State Plan). The activities focus on personal and social skills, educational skills, and career and vocational skills. The activities are organized by grade level, to provide a comprehensive, basic classroom guidance program based upon recognized developmental needs of children. Each grade level is divided into sections on personal/social development; educational development; and career/vocational development. The range of activities includes liking yourself for kindergarten; building communication skills for first grade; developing independent work habits for second grade; learning to compromise and solve conflicts for third grade; developing effective study habits for fourth grade; responding effectively to adults for fifth grade; and assessing the influence of others for sixth grade. It is noted that the activities are designed to foster values traditionally accepted in American society and that they are based on the premise that when provided all available facts and the opportunity to consider likely consequences of behavior, children will develop responsible self direction and choose to behave in ways that are most satisfying to society and themselves.
