Abstract

In this study, the researcher employed instructional design principles to create and evaluate a curriculum guide aimed at helping International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) students enhance certain components of emotional intelligence (EI), namely self-awareness and social skills. Regarding the purpose of the study, the researcher developed a guide by incorporating a technic called expressive arts therapy (EXA); it is a professional discipline that capitalizes on different art tools to support the social and emotional well-being of human beings. In this sense, this guide is created to help educators integrate EXA activities into the Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) programme. To validate the guide, a questionnaire including Likert scales and open-ended items was administered to selected experts from three different areas. The results of the data analysis were used to revise and improve the quality of the guide. The research findings confirmed that the experts agreed that an EXA-based guide has the potential to support these selected components of EI of IBDP students within the scope of CAS.
