Instructional Ideas
  • Display finished clovers around the classroom, particularly next to the Classroom Jobs board if you have one 
  • Use a cooperative learning strategy to heighten engagement and accountability while peers share their clovers 
  • If class members have difficulty listing four roles, encourage them to focus on one with which they can go in detail 
Classroom Considerations
  • The second of two resources about positive character traits 
  • This lesson works in a counseling setting as well as in the classroom 
Pros
  • Social and emotional learning empowers participants now and in the future
  • Boosts self-awareness 
Cons
  • Beware cutting out the clover‚ lines are separated in a way that will cause the paper to easily rip
