Today the Personality Collages are due. We establish 2 circles: an outside circle and an inside circle. You will talk about your pictures and you can tell your partner about the answers to the questions. We rotate every 2 minutes. We talk about the Resiliency Assignment and then start watching MacFarland, USA.
Today we discussed Self-Esteem. We watched Jessica's affirmations. We also discussed steps to Goal Setting.
Today we read about the the 7 habits of highly effective individuals and discussed the first 2: Be Proactive and Begin with the end in mind. We had a great classroom discussion. You began thinking about some short and long term goals in Social, Mental and Physical Health and wrote down some thoughts. We discussed the steps to decision making. Your Collage is due Next Wednesday. We also watched a short clip from Coach Carter that includes this quote . "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light , not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of god. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make and manifest the glory of god that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
