Initiative Drawing Pages: 3 sheets
Initiative is an executive function and is defined as the ability to begin a task or activity and to independently generate ideas, responses, or problem-solving strategies. Students with weaknesses in this area are easily identified because they often take an unusually long time to begin activities. When asked why they haven't started a task, they often say they don't have any ideas or can't think of anything.
The purpose of these pages is to challenge students to generate ideas quickly. Students are given a base image and must use that image to create their own picture. After drawing their picture, they must give their creation a descriptive title.
I recommend giving students a time limit to complete each drawing/title in order to challenge their quick thinking skills. Allowing two minutes or so for each of the nine boxes = 20 minute initiative boosting activity.
