This lesson highlights the importance of bringing our best selves when working with a team.
You may often hear students place blame on others for their own emotions. It is difficult for students to understand that not only do they control their own emotions, but they are responsible for their emotions. One of the best ways to be responsible for your emotions is to be aware of how you are feeling and take preventative measures. This lesson is designed for students to think about how they are feeling, and how they move towards more regulated emotions.
Students will create responsibility artwork with a quote.
Students need opportunities to see success and triumph in the midst of struggle. This lesson provides a video that discusses resilience from a young man who faced a lot of trials in his life.

Goal setting is an important skill every student needs to develop to become a more productive citizen.

So, this lesson will walk students through the steps and supports needed to set and attain their goals.
