Active Learning Exercises for Social Work and the Human Services by Cate Solomon


Active Learning Exercises for Social Work and the Human Services by Cate Solomon

This is a new paperback supplement that can be used in social work and human services courses to engage students in learning skills, knowledge, and values that apply to the helping professions.

The exercises were gathered from undergraduate and graduate faculty in social work, human services, and continuing education departments. The text uses a standard a??recipea?? format for all the exercises, including instructor guidelines for setting up exercises and questions to elicit discussion. Following many of the exercises is a set of accompanying handouts (instructional guides, worksheets, checklists, game cards, etc.) that can be copied for distribution.

Instructors can use these exercises with their students; students can also keep and use these exercises in their practicum or when they begin their practice in the fields of social work or the human services. The final chapter, a??Increasing Sensitivity,a?? includes exercises that sensitize students to culture, class, race, age, sexuality, disability, death and loss. This collection of a??active learninga?? exercises is designed to provide instructors with an array of effective and enjoyable tools to encourage student involvement and learning.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
