Quite a few teachers at our school have helped developed the lessons in my student motivation books and taught them over the past few years.

Our school is now looking at various ways to be a little more systematic about developing SEL skills, and one of the ways is having our Small Learning Communities choose three lessons from the book; have one-to-four teachers in the SLC actually teach them, and then have all the other teachers support the lessons in some way.

Our SLC has decided to start with five of us teaching the goal-setting lesson, and here’s an image of the results from a quick brainstorming session on how all the other teachers are going to support it in their own classes. We’ll be talking more specifics about it at our next meeting later this week — both my books also include lots of other ideas.
