Mergler, Amanda G., Spencer, Fiona H., & Patton, Wendy A. (2008) Personal responsibility: the creation, implementation and evaluation of a school-based program. Journal of Student Wellbeing, 2(1), pp. 35-51.
The purposse of this study was to create, implement and evealuate a Personal Responsibility education program for high-school students. Using a constructivist framework, a five lesson program based on key themes identified by adolescents in focus groups was developed. This program was run over one term at a public high school in urban Queensland. During the term students examined and discussed notions of choices, consequences, emotional awareness, personal and social responsibilities. Feedback from studens and teachers showed that they found the program interesting, relevant and informative for students, and to have strengthened relationships between students within a class and between students and teachers. The program offers high schools the opportunity to enhance adolescents' personal, emotional and social development.
