Developing Emotional Literacy: Transition Planning for Youth at Risk
Fleischer, Leonard
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v19 n1 p50-53 2010
Transition is a term typically used in education to refer to the significant shifts that students encounter before, during, and after their school experience. These changes can occur on a daily basis, as in the transition between classes and the associated behavioral outcomes that might be seen, or changes can be experienced on a larger scale when students change grades or schools. The traditional definition and practice of transition planning has tended to come from special education and generally refers to the process that helps students who are receiving special education services prepare for life after high school, whether to the world of work or to further education. Traditional transition planning focuses on skills for independent living and self support. Research on social and emotional learning suggests the needs to build the capacity in youth for Belonging, Mastery, Independence, and Generosity.
