Day One Conversations
The Find Your Grind curriculum excels at giving educators multiple avenues to engage with their students in really meaningful ways! As an educator, you can start engaging these conversations the very first day of implementing Find Your Grind by honing in on students’ lifestyles. One of the most important activities that all students should engage in initially is the Lifestyle Assessment badge. After completing this activity, each student will be matched to three lifestyles that will resonate with them most. As an educator, you can easily access this information about your students.
Head over to the “Insights” page. Here you will find summary data about your class as a whole. If you don’t have time to dive into each students’ unique lifestyle assessment results then this is a great place to start. Check out the top lifestyle in your class, then experience that badge yourself in the “Explore” Library. Notice what makes a person tick with that lifestyle, and how they see the world. Then, decide how you would like to engage with your students with this information. Some questions to prompt discussions:
- Were you aware of this type of lifestyle before?
- Who, in your life, do you think shares this lifestyle with you (friends, relatives, teachers, etc.)?
- Why do you think you are matched with three lifestyles, rather than just one?
The Insights page will grow richer as students engage more and earn badges within the curriculum. Excitingly though, on day one, it’s easy to start collecting insights.
What do you think? What other types of insights would be meaningful to you and help you engage your students in deeper conversations and learning?
