Self-Science has been in use around the country and the world since its first publication in 1978. This new edition is "teacher friendly" -- written by teachers, for teachers. The curriculum can be incorporated intothe classroom or can be used as a "stand alone" course; rather than a generic perscription, it provides a powerful, flexible framework. The curriculum clearly articulates goals, provides activities, and guides the teacher/facilitator in asking clear, thought-provoking questions to help students help themselves. In his bestselling Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman calls this program, "A model for the teaching of emotional intelligence."
Every teacher should use this book. Well, I am biased, because I am one of the coauthors ... but if you have not seen this book, you really need to! It is practical, clear, and effective. It includes lessons, activities, interesting questions. It is written for elementary school, but I've used the lessons with Middle School - and lots of the activities with adults, too.
