The material is the very best that I have seen for promoting social growth. In almost every lesson, we discussed a problem that students had encountered before. This made the lessons very personal in nature and therefore much more meaningful. Since youngsters with handicaps are often dependent on feelings rather than academic knowledge, they tended to do exceptionally well with this curriculum.

Making The Effort
Based upon the motivational Theory of Attribution (how people behave is dependent on what they “attribute” their behavior may or may not bring), Making The Effort will teach your students that THEY determine whether they succeed or fail in reaching their Transition goals.
Teach your students that of the three elements of success- effort, luck, and talent- EFFORT IS THE ONLY ONE THEY CAN CONTROL.
Making The Effort, a two-part program for LD, EH, and ID secondary students, teaches the relationship between working hard and acquiring soft skills in attaining work and social goals. Students learn to see that their own efforts are the primary causes of their successes. Conversely, students will learn to view a lack of effort as the primary cause of failure.
Students learn to attribute success to hard work and using prosocial soft skills, instead of luck or circumstances.
The Transitions Curriculum
Designed by two nationally known transition experts, this 3-volume curriculum was extensively field-tested in California before becoming a Stanfield bestseller. It is now used in thousands of schools across the US and Canada.
The Transitions Curriculum deals with three areas of competency critical to independent living: Personal Management, Career Management, and Life Management. Lessons are filled with highly motivating, hands-on activities. The Transitions Curriculum includes more than 300 detailed lessons, 600 reproducible handouts, objectives, relevancy statements, student journal updates, individual and group activities, evaluations, key vocabulary words, materials and preparation sections, core subject crossovers, and SCANS Skills references.
The Transitions Curriculum is the most extensive, flexible, comprehensive print curriculum available today. This is the basic curriculum to get your school-to-work program jump-started and up and running to meet government deadlines. The 3-volume Transitions Curriculum will give your students the social and emotional skills they need to make a successful transition from school to work and adulthood. With the Transitions Curriculum, you can give them this preparation and ready them to meet the demands of adult life.
The child who is ‘left behind’ most is the one who leaves school without transition readiness.
