Annotation: THIS MANUAL PROVIDES GUIDELINES FOR TEACHERS, EDUCATION STUDENTS, AND ADMINISTRATORS INVOLVED IN THE PROGRAM OF CRIME PREVENTION AND DRUG EDUCATION DEVELOPED BY THE TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY (TEA).
Abstract: THESE GUIDELINES ACCOMPANY THE TEA PUBLICATION, 'A FRAMEWORK FOR CRIME PREVENTION AND DRUG EDUCATION IN TEXAS: DESIRABLE STUDENT OUTCOME.' THE PROGRAM IS DESIGNED FOR SECONDARY LEVEL STUDENTS. THE GUIDELINES FOCUS ON BROAD HUMAN RELATIONS SKILLS AND HOPED-FOR STUDENT OPINION CHANGES, RATHER THAN SPECIFIC FACTS WHICH MUST BE LEARNED. THE TEACHER'S ROLE AS A MODEL IS EMPHASIZED. CHARTS PRESENT GENERIC SKILLS, PROCESS SKILLS, AND RESOURCE SKILLS DEEMED NEEDED TOGETHER WITH THE DESIRED STUDENT OUTCOME. A FOOTNOTED GLOSSARY DISCUSSES PERTINENT TERMS. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS APPENDED. BY AND LARGE, THE SKILLS DISCUSSED COVER ACCEPTANCE OF SELF, ABILITY TO RELATE TO OTHERS, ACCEPTANCE OF DIFFERING LIFE STYLES, AND RESPECT FOR INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES. (GLR)
