Unit: 4

Into Action: Creative Activities

Into Action demonstrates that any student, regardless of learning level, has the ability to participate, engage and be a member of a fully connected classroom community. The activities in this section have been designed to teach social and emotional intelligence through a playful and creative approach. They promote personal success, and provide strategies that improve students’ ability to think critically and act thoughtfully. Proper implementation builds attention and communication skills, and allows students to discover their unique talents. The development of these skills creates a more caring, responsible and empathetic community and turns students into ambassadors who can carry these concepts into the world at large.
