This set of 7 practical manuals 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 the Your Choice Series 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 structured lesson plan with suggestions for further work.
The set includes the following resources:
“Your Choice Series is a valuable resource, which can be used with flexibility – large chunks or single activities can be used with equal success.”
