The START Curriculum: An Interactive and Experiential Curriculum for Building Strong Character and Healthy Relationships in Middle and High Schools.
Martin, Craig; Lehr, Judy
This booklet is designed for teachers and counselors in middle schools and high schools who are teaching the Sharing Today and Responsibility Tomorrow (START) Curriculum. The mission of the START Curriculum is to help students develop strong character by providing them with awareness, knowledge, and skills for building healthy relationships with themselves, important others, and the community. This is accomplished through experimental and interactive activities that do not lecture or proselytize. This curriculum may be used as a standalone semester-long course, in group counseling situations, as an adjunct to life skills and teen living courses, and within religious organizations. It is appropriate for middle school age students to adults. The introduction section of the booklet discusses how to and who should use the curriculum, grading and assessment, the history of the program, which activities to include if presentation of the curriculum is abbreviated, and solution-focused questions. The rest of the booklet is dedicated to the presentation of 80 activities, with accompanying handouts for most. Descriptions of activities provide objectives of the activity, sequential procedure for the activity, and suggested questions for processing issues raised within the activity. (Contains 17 resources.) (MKA)
