(75 + 10 materials)
Text / Materials Required
Life Skills for Teens by Karen Harris ISBN: 978-951806-40-8
New topics for spring semester, so new and fall students are welcome!
So, your high schooler knows the difference between mitosis and meiosis but still cannot figure out how to make dinner, manage money, treat a cold, set goals, maintain healthy relationships, and successfully navigate the myriad of responsibilities required of a young adult? While this class is not guaranteed to produce self-sufficient teens, it does strive to equip them with practical knowledge and skills that will assist them on their road to adulthood.
This very interactive class involves many resources, practical demonstrations, in-class presentations and group activities. Reading from the required text supplements what students are learning. Weekly homework will be practical, not burdensome, yet purposely designed to get the most out of the class. Parental cooperation will be required (e.g., discussing career choices ). Different topics will be covered in the spring than in the fall, including laundry, house maintenance, decision making, problem solving, living a balanced life, college/career, resumes, and more.
Adulting isn’t easy, so why not give your student the advantage of a jumpstart in a safe, fun environment before he or she leaves the nest?
