dc.description.abstract The project: Finding Solutions: Teaching the Problem-Solving Process explains an integrated approach to teaching personal problem-solving through social skill lessons, language arts activities and classroom management strategies. The researcher developed a rationale, lesson plans, and methodology based on an in-depth review of the literature. The researcher drew on her experience as a classroom teacher to develop an approach that attempts to meet the needs of all learners and to suit her teaching style. She used the problem-solving steps from the Second Step violence prevention program (Committee for Children, 1992) as a framework to build the unit that she implemented in her Grade 3 classroom. The lessons were also linked to the learning outcomes found in British Columbia's Integrated Resource Package for Personal Planning (1995). The rating scale for Grades K to 3: Solving Problems in Peaceful Ways from the B. C. Performance Standards: Social Responsibility draft document was used (Ministry of Education, 2000). The study concluded that the blend of interactive and independent activities was effective in strengthening the students' personal problem-solving abilities. The students also demonstrated an increased willingness to solve their own problems. Appendices include the bibliography of children's literature, the student self-evaluation questionnaire, and lesson worksheets that were used in implementing and assessing the unit. en
