PLANNING FOR TRANSITION LESSON PLAN

 

A lesson plan on planning for transitions.

 

 

 

 

Transitions occur regularly in everyday life, and students' ability to plan, navigate, and manage themselves through their transitions will dictate their success in life.

 

 

Use the following lesson on planning for transitions.

 

 

 

 

 

TRANSITIONS AND PLANNING PROCESS

 

Divide the class into pairs or small groups.


Distribute one index card to each pair. On the index card is written one sample transition or change encountered throughout life. Be sure to include transitions from each aspect of life: personal, family, community and career.


•Allow approximately 10 minutes for each pair or group of students to work through the six-step Planning Process to determine how it would apply in managing the change or transition assigned to them.

 
•Before the student pairs begin their 10 minute task, provide them with a copy of My Group Skills/Performance (see worksheet below). As they apply the Planning Process to one of life's transitions, ask them to concentrate on the first three items on the form.


•Bring closure to this co-operative group skill session by asking each pair to state, aloud to the entire group, the transition they were assigned and whether they found the Planning Process applicable in managing it.


•Lastly, ask students to rate themselves on the first three items of the assessment instrument, date it and submit it.

 

 

SAMPLE TRANSITIONS:


• Selecting a high school (personal transition)


• Reacting to peer pressure regarding cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal drugs. (personal transition)


• Deciding whether or not to build a cabin at the lake. (family transition)
