Decisions about drug use : adolescent decisions curriculum by Steven Brion-Meisels( )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This teacher's manual for drug abuse education is one volume of a six volume curriculum for the secondary level, designed to provide a systematic, group-oriented approach to decision-making in areas crucial to adolescent development: drug (substance) use and abuse, sexuality and social relationships, juvenile law, work and people and government. An introductory section lists the general goals of the curriculum, i.e, to provide factual information, to increase awareness, and to provide decision-making practice, and describes the desired core social skills outcomes, i.e., social understanding/perspective taking; cognitive problem solving, (alternative and consequential thinking); communication; and evaluation. The 24 lessons in the manual cover general drug related information and specific drugs (e.g., caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, cocaine). Information portions of each lesson focus on terminology, how drugs are made, their effects on the body, and relevant laws. Awareness activities explore the effects of advertisers, peer pressure, role models, and drug pushers in drug involvement. Decision activities anticipate situations involving drugs and provide students with opportunities to practice decision skills. Suggestions for needed materials, handouts, student evaluations, and lesson evaluations are included for each lesson and at the end of the manual. (BL)

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This teacher's manual is one volume in a six volume curriculum for the secondary level, designed to provide a systematic, group-oriented approach to decision-making in areas crucial to adolescent development: sexuality and social relationships, drug (substance) use and abuse, work, juvenile law, and people and government. An introductory section lists the general goals of the curriculum, i.e, to provide factual information, to give students an opportunity to anticipate, practice, and reflect on decisions they face or will face about sexual behavior, and to legitimize student questions and concerns. Lesson format and suggested teaching strategies, e.g., role plays, collages, brainstorming, are also described in the introduction and suggestions for staff training, and parent and community involvement, and a list of audiovisual materials and references are provided. The 23 content lessons cover anatomy and puberty; changing relationships (decisions, parents, friendships, dating, sex roles, homosexuality); sexual activity (readiness, pregnancy, birth control, disease); and parenting and lifestyle. Each lesson lists goals, activities, needed materials, and references. Activities and materials include vocabulary lessons, confidential question boxes, worksheets, strategies for decision-making, homework, and lesson evaluations. A final student assessment and course evaluation complete the manual. (BL)

Decisions about work : adolescent decisions curriculum by Steven Brion-Meisels( )

in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This teacher's manual is one volume of a six volume curriculum for the secondary level, designed to provide a systematic, group-oriented approach to decision-making in areas crucial to adolescent development: work, drug (substance) use and abuse, sexuality and social relationships, people and government, and juvenile law. The decisions about work program combines general job and economic awarness with a focus on specific skill development. Each lesson uses activities, e.g., role play, films, site visits, speakers, handouts and worksheets, and references to develop decision-making and negotiation skills as they relate to finding, getting, and keeping a job. Positive worker role models, work experiences, and career awareness are integrated into the lessons. The program is divided into seven general topics and then further subdivided into 31, sequential 45-minute lessons. The content areas include: Introduction (job interests and exploration); World of Work (job site visits, speakers); Unemployment (concept, economics); Personal Interests and Skills (assessment, exercises, self awareness); Job Hunting Steps (procedures, practice); Personal Data (resume, job hunting skills); and Interpersonal Skills (employer survey, interview, work expectations). A final student assessment and course evaluation complete the manual. (BL)

Serving Adolescents in the Care of Child Welfare Agencies Through the Employment and Job Training Partnership Systems. a Manual for Child Welfare and Employment and Training Professionals by Mary Jo Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This manual is intended to assist child welfare and training professionals in working collaboratively to make employment and training opportunities available for adolescents served by the child welfare system. Discussed first are the child welfare system, the Job Training Partnership Act (jtpa), and the need for collaboration among professionals involved in each of them. The next section consists of seven chapters of strategies for collaboration and methods for providing access to employment and training for high-risk youth (recruitment techniques, funding sources, eligibility of child welfare youth under jtpa, and recommendations for statewide implementation). Section 3 contains 3 chapters on the background, programs, and youth profiles of the Job Opportunities for Youth (joy) Project. (The joy Project was a model demonstration program linking private industry councils, employment programs, child welfare agencies, and youth service providers in target sites in Connecticut and Massachusetts for the purpose of helping older adolescents prepare for independent living.) Appendixes to this manual contain 23 exhibits, including the results of an emergency shelter employment survey, lists of New England jtpa administrators and service delivery areas, project eligibility policies, program orientation packets and correspondence, a questionnaire covering the needs of youth, materials describing the policies and activities of the Montachusett Area Community Improvement Team Program, and information on the Targeted Jobs Tax Credit. Provided also is an addendum to the joy project manual detailing the continuing work in each of three Massachusetts project sites and offering further recommendations for those considering replication.
