In lesson 1, students think about how positive and negative thoughts can influence how they act. They are encouraged to appreciate the benefit of having a positive mindset.
Students now think more deeply about their own attitudes and the effects of thinking positively about themselves. They identify areas of their lives that may benefit from some positive affirmations.
In this exercise, the class now turn their attention to role models. Using real life examples, students will begin to understand how capitalise on the skills, qualities and traits that they have identified in their own role model.
In the final lesson, students will bring together the learning on positive mental attitudes with additional confidence building skills to conclude the learning on this topic.
