Student Workshop: How To Say No. Grades 2-4. [Multimedia Kit].
Saying no to friends, classmates, and adults is often difficult for young children. In school, children may find themselves in uncomfortable situations that involve choosing between what they perceive as right and going along with others whom they trust. This multimedia workshop kit (16 minute VHS video plus guidebook) helps children understand that they do not automatically have to do everything that is asked of them if they do not feel that it is right. Realistic scenarios present examples of situations in which it's all right for a child to say no to friends and even to an adult. Simple techniques for saying no, suggestions for making up for a poor decision, changing a yes answer to no, and skills for respectful disagreement are presented. Guidebook includes: (1) Introduction; (2) Bibliography; (3) Script; and (4) Handouts. The introduction covers: (1) "Learning Objectives"; (2) "Using the Program"; (3) "Summary of the Program"; (4) "Discussion Questions"; and (5) "Follow Up Activities." Sections of the program may be used over several classroom sessions to provide time for activities and discussion. Workshop sections are (1) "You Can Say No"; (2) "Just Walk Away"; (3) "You Can Do What's Best for You"; (4) "You Can Change Your Mind." Includes 16 activity sheets and English/Spanish Send-Home pages. (EMK)
