Description:This skills lab will provide students with knowledge of and basic facilitation skills in the Teen Outreach Program (TOP), an evidence-based youth development and teen pregnancy prevention model. TOP is one of the few youth development initiatives proven to be highly effective in preventing risk factors of school dropout, academic failure, and teen pregnancy. The TOP facilitator skills lab content will include an orientation to TOP - including program history, core goals, core principles, key outcomes, the TOP fidelity model, and an overview of how and why TOP gets results. The TOP Changing Scenes curriculum will be introduced with modeling of two lessons, a review of Community Service Learning principles, practice building a service learning project with a group, coaching on and practice facilitating sensitive subject matter, and values neutral facilitation. The experiential learning cycle and multiple intelligence theory will be reviewed, including practice integrating both into lessons and service learning. An overview of operational, sequencing, and routine considerations for planning a TOP club will be provided. Teams of two to three training participants will prepare and practice facilitating a TOP lesson. Trainers will provide consistent modeling of techniques for group engagement, process learning, and integrating the core components of TOP.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
