My Project

ai am requesting materials that will help me teach my students life skills. I plan to have them read the book, Find Fish and discuss it. They will also use a journal as a writing tool to reflect upon ideas, discussions to enhance their understanding of the material that will be studied. After they are familiar with the book and the concept of journaling, I will read small sections of the book 7 Habits for Highly Effective Teens which is full of wisdom and common sense needed for students to navigate their lives. They will then journal responses to questions such as What are your good habits? What are your bad habits? Describe yourself a leader.

Using these books will help my students learn to communicate and interact positively with others.

They will enhance the life skills of all my students.
