Social Work Corner

During social work time, our beginning of the month's Social and Emotional topic has been two fold.  The two topics we have been focusing on are self awareness and coping strategies. First, we reflected on how we performed during Quarter 1.  Each student completed a google form answering questions about their progress during Quarter 1.  After the google form was completed, we then had a discussion about how they could improve their performance and change some behaviors during Quarter 2.  Here is the google form the students completed.  

Quarter 1 Self reflection Google Form 

Some of the student’s self reflection comments were: “I need to ask for help more.”  “I need to set an alarm clock to get up for class.”  “I need to remember to charge  my chromebook more.”  And “I should listen more in class.” 

Then we also focused on the social and emotional topic of coping strategies.  During individual and small groups, students learned what coping strategies are and then analyzed healthy versus unhealthy ways to manage intense emotions.    Students reflected on past behaviors and developed a  healthy coping strategy plan to reduce stress and anxiety.   The following are the assignments we completed together to learn about coping strategies:

We will continually self reflect at the end of each quarter and practice coping strategies throughout the school year along with many more SEL topics!!!!  :)
