FOCUS ON: THERE IS ALWAYS A SOLUTION (US29306): Apply problem solving strategies to resolve day to day issues (5 credits)
The THERE IS ALWAYS A SOLUTION student learning workbooklet and NCEA L1 assessment package works through a range of activities that help students think about different situations they face that may trigger issues or need help to solve. This theme works through tasks that help students think about being in different situations that could trigger stress, anger, grief, making choices etc. It is useful to have already thought about what we may feel and how we could react in different situations so we have some strategies that will help us cope.
What is in our own community?
Identifying and understanding our emotions
Education and personal issues & strategies
Work issues & strategies
NOTE: A great lead into these skills before NCEA L1 is the SLR HELP ME (understanding symbols/signs, seeking help, support at school) or HOW I BEHAVE (emotions, triggers, support at school) from the SLR Series One workbooklets or CONFIDENCE PLUS workbooklet from SLR Series One Plus workbooklets (knowing your hood, everyday instructions, outside our comfort) or CHALLENGING CHOICES (everyday choices, emotional choices, serious situations, preparing for hazards & disasters) from Series Two workbooklets.
