A collection of photo-illustrated lessons that help adolescents and young adults recognize, and understand, the way people are likely to feel in a variety of life situations. The lessons include photo-illustrated stories, with main characters of all ages and ethnicities.
Each of the 19 lessons opens with a title and text to introduce the story, followed by a symbol-supported dictionary of emotions page. Every page of the four-page story is a new scene, depicted with color photographs and text to illustrate the situation. Each story page also features a multiple-choice “How do I feel?” question which requires the student to correctly identify, by facial expression, the character’s likely response. Following the story are two pages of symbol-supported review material and activities.
The book pages are provided as a printable PDF file on a companion CD-ROM, plus a Classroom License that lets you print stories for each student. Also on the CD are JPEG versions of the photos and illustrations of facial expressions appearing in the book. These can be used for worksheets, flashcards, or to illustrate the students’ own stories.
