Instructional Ideas
  • The journal and many of the worksheets are used in multiple sessions; therefore, have class members create a special folder for these materials, and have them bring this folder to each class session
Classroom Considerations
  • The seventh in a series of 10 resources focusing on Social, Physical, Emotional, Cognitive and Spiritual (SPECS) health
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
Pros
  • The nine-page packet includes activities, directions, journal prompts, and links to required materials
Cons
  • The labeling of the handouts may prove confusing since they have both a resource number and an activity number
