Instructional Ideas

  • Use in a health class, language arts class, or peer-counseling group
  • Prompt kids to expand their reflections about stress into longer narrative essays
  • Bring the questions and activities into your classroom to inspire discussion
Classroom Considerations

  • Designed for high school students, but you could use the activities with mature middle schoolers
  • Some discussion topics may be sensitive; establish a classroom atmosphere where participants feel safe sharing their feelings and experiences
  • The writing section directs participants not to write their name on the paper, good for anonymity but tricky for grading
Pros

  • Well-organized and thoughtful
  • Provides links to articles for teens to read about bullies, text anxiety, sports pressure, and body image
  • Helpful for those who have a hard time discussing their feelings
Cons

  • None
