Teens, whether we believe or not, tend to get bogged down with stress, peer pressure and anxiety. All of that negative energy can certainly affect on their brains, productivity, relationships, and school work. In this easy prep lesson with text-based and self-to-text questions, students close read an article to exercise comprehension and analysis while learning about the power of positive thinking. The lesson provides some gentle encouragement for them to shed their negative thoughts and words. It would be excellent for any subject any time of the year.
