Product Description
Your students will learn these important keys to Persistence:

Belief - You have to believe in something enough to endure the fight for it

Self-Control - The voice that will tell you to quit the most often will be yours

Passion - Passion is the energy that drives all persistence

Hard Work - Not quitting can be the hardest thing you will ever have to fight

Patience - Wait for success to come in its proper time

A Steady Pace - Persistence is a steady daily pace

Persistence is one of the most powerful skills you can ever develop. A persistent person, by their very nature, is unstoppable over time. Even if they never reach their goal, their refusal to quit moving forward changes the world forever.

Persistence is often thought of as only a refusal to quit. It is far more than that. It is a steady and very active force driving a dream or goal forward in little increments that eventually make a huge difference. Persistence is about not quitting while performing a steady stream of small actions.

Inside the Workbook Pages:

A narrative of the skill
A “working” definition of the skill
An easy to use and understand behavior model
Two discussion sections
Goal setting
Behavior identification for change
Journaling Exercise
End of practice reflection
Discussion model

This resource will help your students learn what Persistence is, how they need to change their behaviors, and how to use it in their own 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 in Persistence. 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. This 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).” (https://mcc.gse.harvard.edu/files/gse-mcc/files/sel_and_common_core_1.pdf)
