Humble ISD counselors teach The Great 8: Skills for Daily Life using the Why Try program as the foundation of the guidance curriculum. I will conduct Classroom Guidance Lessons using our Why Try curriculum and the "Great 8 Skills" generated from the book How Children Succeed by Paul Tough.
During the 2020-2021 school year, we will focus on:
- Decision Making
- Personal Responsibility
- Social –Awareness
Decision Making- A child's approach to problem solving that involves learning from others and from their own previous experiences, using their values to guide their actions, and accepting responsibility for their decisions.
Personal Responsibility- A child's tendency to be careful and reliable in her/his actions and in contributing to group efforts.
Self-Awareness- A child's realistic understanding of his/her own strengths and limitations and consistent desire for self improvement.
Social Awareness- A child's capacity to interact with others in a way that shows respect for their ideas and behaviors, recognizes her/his impact on them, and uses cooperation and tolerance in social situations.
During the 2021-2022 school year, we will focus on:
Goal Directed Behavior.
I will be coming into the classroom each 9 weeks to get to know your children and to promote our SOAR (safe, organized, accountable, and respectful) moto here at ESE!
