Circle Time for Adolescents
A Seven Session Programme for 14 to 16 Year Olds

March 2004 | 114 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
In the fourth addition to her series of books about Circle Time in the Secondary School, Charlie has developed a fascinating Circle Time book that addresses the transition from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4 and considers the dip in achievement especially evident amongst boys.

At this transitional phase schools focus on the continuity of curriculum rather than emotional needs. This Circle Time book helps develop emotional wellbeing and reduces the likelihood that pupils will struggle in the later stages of secondary education.

Young people need signposting, support, understanding, direction and confidence building at the start of their Key Stage 4 journey.

The seven sessions consider issues such as:

" Co-operation

" Conflict and anger management

" Relationships

" Hopes and aspirations

" Stress and stress management.

Detailed facilitator notes and copiable resources are included in the book

The learning achieved in this programme fits some of the requirements of Citizenship and PSHE curriculum.
