PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this lesson, students are presented with situations in which other did and did not show "initiative." Students are introduced to the definition, which is also discussed in context.

One component of this lesson includes the short story "The Dog Poop Initiative" by Kirk Weisler. Students set a purpose for reading, taking note of who in the story takes and does not take initiative. It is cute, funny and engaging way to introduce this concept to students.

Students read about the author and his background, and use that information as well as the story to determine his purpose for writing a story about taking initiative.

Lastly, students are given the opportunity to brainstorm situations in school and in their own lives where initiative could or should be taken. (chores around the house, helping others in the classroom or cafeteria, etc.) Students also discuss the consequences of taking and not taking initiative in their lives.
