Instructional Ideas

  • If a protocol is not yet in place for safe, respectful discussion of personal topics, take the time to establish such a protocol that includes ground rules for behavior
  • Many of the worksheets and journals are used in multiple sessions; therefore, have class members create a special folder for these materials, and have them bring this folder to each class session
Classroom Considerations

  • The first in a series of 10 resources focusing on the Social, Physical, Emotional, Cognitive and Spiritual (SPECS) elements of health
Pros

  • The five-page packet includes an overview of the purpose and directions for each activity 
Cons

  • The labeling of the handouts may prove confusing since they have both a resource number and an activity number
