The Great 8: Skills for Daily Life
The Guidance Curriculum in Humble ISD provides all students with the knowledge and skills appropriate for their developmental level through systematic delivery of the guidance curriculum in classrooms and/or small groups. In order to promote and enhance the learning program and in accordance with Texas and national standards, the guidance curriculum addresses the areas of personal/social, academic, and career development.
Humble ISD counselors teach The Great 8: Skills for Daily Life using the Why Try program as the foundation of the guidance curriculum. From the information and knowledge acquired through the awareness phase, students develop the skills to identify the responsibilities and behaviors appropriate to functioning effectively in each of the environments.
