Your Choice is a complete, easy-to-use course of PSHE activities and strategies, with accompanying photocopiable master worksheets. It is designed for Personal and Social Skills lessons or active tutorial work, based on experiential learning methods. The exercises are flexible enough to be dipped into as a component of a Health Education, Religious Education, or English course.
For young people Your Choice provides a secure and stimulating framework within which they can consider their attitudes and behaviour, and develop more mature insights into their own personalities and their interaction with others.
Each handbook represents about a term’s work on a specific aspect of personal skills development and each chapter provides a structures lesson plan, and suggestions for further work.
Making Decision enables students to recognise and practise the skills of decision making. Gathering information, clarifying personal values and generating alternative solutions are examined in detail. Students are encouraged to take more control of their lives by taking responsibility for making considered and informed decisions about real-life situations.
Authors Shay & Margaret McConnon spent 15 years in special education, teaching young people who had emotional and behavioural difficulties. They developed programmes to enhance the self-worth of these students and to improve their social skills. The Your Choice books are best sellers in their field and continue to form the basis for many PSHE programmes across the English-speaking world.
‘Your Choice Series is a valuable resource, which can be used with flexibility – large chunks or single activities can be used with equal success’
