The skills curriculum: Study Skills, Organizational Skills, Self-Awareness and Understanding Self Skills: A Development of Skills Curriculum for Middle School Students was created for the guidance staff at Twin Oaks Middle School. Each lesson is designed around an issue or topic that has been identified as a common subject matter during scheduled group sessions during this age of adolescence. The purpose of the skills curriculum allows for the guidance staff to have an additional resource to pull material from regarding specific subject matters.
Specifically, each lesson is based upon research and literature that supports the introduction, education, and implementation of the outlined lessons and developed psychoeducational material. Each lesson is designed to educate the students and incorporate group work, including completion of the psychoeducational material within a given 20 minute period of time.
