If It's to Be, It's Up to Me!

Eighth graders discuss the question: How does one become an effective decision-maker or problem solver in social situations? They are given three brief scenarios and after each one students are asked, "What would you do?" Students think of possible problems their peers may encounter in social situations, they write the problem down on paper, and plance in "Pandora's Problem Box."

I would truly be lost without Lesson Planet! Although I have been in the classroom for over 25 years, I am very challenged by the need to obtain English-language student materials here in Estonia where I am the International Teacher for an Estonian public school. These materials are excellent, and well suited to ELL/ESL students. Especially, I can find both primary materials AND more sophisticated lessons - Math here, for instance, is quite advanced and I use materials from upper grades in addition to elementary math materials. Thank Goodness for Lesson Planet!|
