Discussion model

This resource will help your students learn how they can change their behaviors, and how to use their new skills in their life through goal setting. There are two discussion sections in the lesson which you can use with the entire class or break them up into small groups. It has an easy to understand model for the skill describing the necessary behaviors, the destructive behaviors, and misconceptions. There is a section for personal goal setting and the opportunity to pick a real-life situation to practice the skill. The student begins to learn how their behavior impacts those around them by identifying two people who will benefit from their growth. Finally, a reflection section is included for the end of the week so the student can reflect on what they have learned and how it has changed them.

PowerPoint Presentation

Everything you need to teach the lesson and carry on the discussion exercises with your class is on the slides. This presentation is taken directly from the workbook pages and is an excellent complement to the lesson. You can use this presentation in conjunction with the lesson or as a stand-alone resource. We also include “My Ownership Pledge” which challenges the students to take personal responsibility for their behavior, lives, and personal growth.

Grading Rubric

The grading rubric will allow you to assign a grade to the student’s work if you so choose. You can assess them in four areas: Creating a plan and goals, Situation for practice, Discussion and participation, Final personal assessment. Each of the four objectives has a clear description and the rubric totals of 100 points.

Discussion Guide

This is a guide with some great tips on conducting a healthy and considerate discussion for everyone involved. It explains how to get the discussion started and also how to deal with problems that may come up. This guide comes from years of facilitating classroom discussions and working with managers and leaders to improve their meetings. It has excellent suggestions for the classroom or boardroom.


The lesson can also aid in Common Core goals. Harvard’s Graduate School of Education in a recent paper states: ”Educators and social and emotional learning (SEL) experts are increasingly acknowledging that building students’ SEL skills can help schools meet the Common Core State Standards(CCSS).” (
