The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens: Imagine your teen had a roadmap—a step-by-step guide to help him or her get to where they want to be in the future. Goals, dreams, plans… all within reach!
Now updated for the digital age, this classic study applies the timeless principles of the 7 Habits to the tough issues and life-changing decisions that today’s teens face. In an entertaining style, this study provides a simple approach to help teens improve self-image, build friendships, resist peer pressure, achieve their goals, and get along with their parents, as well as tackle the new challenges of our time, like cyberbullying and social media.
HABITUDES The Art of Self Leadership: The “habits” and “attitudes” of leaders are uncovered in this
course, grounded in extensive research, utilizing language, images and stories specifically designed to resonate with today’s emerging generation, teaching life skills and leadership characteristics in a fresh, engaging way.
HABITUDES Helps Middle and High School Students:
- Build character based on emotional security
- Handle criticism and learn to use feedback for personal improvement
- Become a better model of healthy leadership by increasing self-awareness
- Turn their core values into actions that inspire peers to follow
In addition to the studies planned, students will learn professional presentation skills, work with mobile technology (laptops, tablets, flash drives), and develop and present their own “Student as Teacher” professional presentation in our classroom / small-group setting. As a class, we will work toward the goal of having “teams” of our students professionally present in front of the school at year’s end.
