M2: Reflection on Know Yourself: Enhance Emotional Literacy

~ 10 minutes 

Tell us about your experience. Write a reflection about the activity from the Try This page that you chose to implement in your classroom. 

As you reflect, respond to the following prompts. You do not have to use all of them. 

  • Which activity did you try? Explain why you chose this particular one? 
  • Did working to help your students become more aware of their emotions bring any “aha moments” for you? Describe one. 
  • What did you learn about your students from trying this in your classroom? Can you give an example? 
  • What did you learn about yourself as an educator from doing this activity? Did you become more aware of your emotions during the course of the school day and in response to your students? 
  • What impact might improved emotional literacy have in your classroom? Why? How?
