Warm-Up: Attention Grabber ;)

In this scene from "Easy A" (2010) a high school student is facing a difficult issue caused primarily by a rumor she started about herself that has grown out of her control.

"When you're a kid, school is your career. And if you go out of business in school, if your business goes bankrupt, if you're not having any success, you're left with almost nothing. You are poverty-stricken. Where do you go from there?“

Overview and Demographics
  • Community Day Schools are schools for students who have been expelled from school or who have had problems with attendance or behavior or have been released by a juvenile detention center.
  • These schools serve troubled students in many ways. They offer challenging classes and teach important skills. They have counselors and other professionals who assist students.

Theoretical Constructs

Social skills and/or life skills are behaviors that need to be taught and practiced until the skill can be exhibited fluently and appropriately (Lane et al., 2005).

Skills for Success is a program developed by the Orange County Human Relations Councilthat focuses onthe requisite skill that all students should possess and include both social and academic components to help students achieve success both at school and beyond (OCHR, 2012).

Theoretical Constructs Continued

Teaching these skills is an essential, yet overlooked part of student success. Around the world, Life Skills-Based Education (LSBE) is being adopted as a means to empower young people in challenging situations (Life Skills, 2012).

LSBE refers to an interactive process of teaching and learning which enables learners to acquire knowledge and to develop attitudes and skills which support the adoption of healthy behaviors(Life Skills, 2012).
