Assertiveness for Middle School Students is a behaviour management program designed to teach students when and how to choose an assertive behaviour option. This practical program focuses on emotional literacy as a way of raising students' awareness of their feelings, and looks at helping students develop confidence and a positive attitude about themselves. The program consists of 11 one-hour lessons. Each assertiveness lesson outlines its aims and method, the resources required and suggested timings for each activity. The ideas and activities contained in each lesson are skills-based, interactive and fun. This program offers teachers flexibility in conducting an emotional literacy class and includes a wealth of useful information and photocopiable resource materials.
