The things we do well are often called our ‘strengths’ and can include things like displaying kindness, courage, leadership and creativity. Evidence shows that when we are using our strengths, we are happier, more energised, and feel that what we are doing is purposeful and meaningful. When students know their strengths, they can use them to help them achieve their goals and to approach tasks with a sense of purpose and confidence.
Students learn about character strengths and how to apply them to activities, goals and tasks.
By the end of the lesson, students will be able to:
- identify their personal strengths
- identify how to use them in their life
- understand the role of their strengths in completing tasks and activities.
