Adolescent Parent Resource Guide. An Instructional Resource for the Graduation Reality and Dual-Role Skills Program and Other Programs Serving Pregnant and Parenting Teens.
Enright, Sharon; Boggs, Heather
This resource guide is designed to help teachers assist pregnant and parenting teens, such as those enrolled in Graduation, Reality, and Dual-Role Skills (GRADS) programs, in achieving the competencies outlined in the GRADS Ohio Competency Analysis Profile. Introductory materials include information on use of the guide and resource material on two key issues for classroom instruction: trauma and posttraumatic stress and involving parents in the education of teen parents. The main part of the guide begins with a unit on the process competencies that represent important lifelong learning skills for adolescent parents. The nine content units are as follows: self-formation; pregnancy, wellness, and prenatal care; postpartum/neonatal care; parenting; enhancing child development; creation of a healthy, safe environment; relationships and social support systems; economic independence; and employability. Learning activities in these units reinforce the process competencies as students study and develop action plans. Each unit includes the following components: one-page overview, teacher background information, learning activities for both individual students and groups, action projects designed to help students transfer learning to real-life situations, and student resources (handouts). Special features of the learning activities include performance assessment, family involvement, journal activities, and student-developed resource notebooks. (YLB)
