Enhancing Self Esteem of Individuals, Developing an Awareness of Feelings, Promoting Realistic Goal Setting and Enriching Values in the Classroom and Community
The Life Skills series was developed to equip the busy classroom teacher with practical and relevant ideas for enhancing essential life skills in individual students. This innovative four-book series aims to fill the gap between the frameworks set out by national bodies and the delivery of sensitive, yet meaningful, lessons in the everyday class.
Many of the topics that are dealt with in this series are specifically designed for a particular event that may arise in the classroom. Activities can be used in one-on-one discussions or as whole class activities, depending on the situation. The materials are designed for middle to upper primary students, however, the ideas and information are appropriate for all school aged children.
The Life Skills: Self Esteem and Values book focuses on student feelings, self awareness, self esteem, goal setting and enriching values both in school and in the wider community. Activities include setting attainable goals, analysing personal strengths and weaknesses and exploring ways to demonstrate values, as well as fun stuff like developing board games for the bored!
Each book in this series contains extensive background notes for teachers, parents and students. Many sections contain annotated resource lists for multimedia, literature and general classroom resources. Extension ideas are given where possible and all activities are linked to student outcomes.
