Instructional Ideas
  • Many of the worksheets and the journal are used in multiple sessions and multiple years; therefore, have class members create a special folder for these materials and have them bring it to each class session
Classroom Considerations
  • The series presumes that a protocol has been established that permits a safe and respectful discussion of highly-charged issues
  • The series revisits lessons from the previous years and requires class members to use information sheets provided in those courses
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
Pros
  • The 11-page packet includes an overview of the purpose of the activities, journal prompts, and scenarios that permit class members to practice using creative approaches to decision making
Cons
  • The labeling of the handouts may prove confusing since they have both a resource number and an activity number
