Life Skills Literacy (2001)

A Summary of Task and Skill Ratings and a Bibliography of Resources

This is a report on a project which focused on the Life Skill Literacy needs of at risk youth 16-18, who have been committed to a young offender institution and who show no evident interest in returning to traditional schooling upon release. The target population of the study was aboriginal youth, largely from remote northern communities where the traditional employment of hunting, trapping and guiding remain prevalent. Some of the target population has personal problems with nonprescription drug use and alcohol abuse. A portion of the target population may exhibit some characteristics and behaviors consistent with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.

At the end of the report is a list of teaching resources, including books, computer software and websites, which is grouped by subject area.
