A1.5. Social-Emotional Learning Skills, Self-Awareness and Sense of Identity: Apply skills that help them develop self-awareness and self-confidence as they participate in learning experiences in health and physical education, in order to support the development of a sense of identity and a sense of belonging.
This lesson helps students become aware of their top five signature strengths and learn how to tap into those strengths to maximize their engagement and success both inside and outside the classroom. Becoming aware of other classmates' top five signature strengths also helps students support each other and cultivate a positive and encouraging classroom climate. (Achieved in GO activity)
Health and Physical Education
3.4. Creating Media Texts, Producing Media Texts: produce a variety of media texts for specific purposes and audiences, using appropriate forms, conventions, and techniques.
Students contribute to the creation of a classroom strengths tree, which they can reference throughout the school year to help with strengths spotting and to build appreciative, respectful relationships with their classmates. As a class, students identify how the strengths tree can be best used and they have the opportunity to reflect on the significance of their leaves on the tree. (Achieved in GO activity)
The Arts, Visual Arts
D1.3. The Arts, Visual Arts, Creating and Presenting: Use elements of design in art works to communicate ideas, messages, and understandings.
As a visual representation of their strengths, students design and create a lead that includes their name as well as the name of their strength. In creating this leaf, students can creatively use colour, font, space and lines to represent their strength and unique personality. (Achieved in GO activity)
Character Development
Not Applicable.
Strengths-awareness is an essential part of living an engaged life and, therefore, supports students’ growth, leadership potential, as well as academic and social engagement at school. This lesson helps students recognize that everyone has a unique set of strengths and that these strengths are beneficial in different environments. In other words, every student has a spark that makes them who they are, and every spark is valuable and important. Applying a strengths-based approach to education and life also develops students grit and academic tenacity. Character Development is all about helping students develop an ever-growing depth of self-awareness and this lesson introduces a new kind of awareness - strengths awareness. By reflecting on and understanding their strengths, students enhance their engagement, achievement, and self-esteem.
