Teachers didn't sign up to be counselors, but the reality is in today's world they have to deal with students' feelings in the classroom. From character education and retention to substance abuse and safe schools, this resource tackles the toughest issues teachers and their students face today. A ready-made curriculum and full-color posters are included. Each unit engages students' interests by working through a central theme they can relate to their own lives. They then build on this self-understanding to improve interactions with others. Seven units with reproducible handouts include knowing yourself, accepting yourself, managing yourself, connecting with others, communicating with others, cooperating with others, and handling conflicts with others.
