SEL Lesson for NEXT Week (March 2-6)

Big picture

Lesson 22: Problem-Solving with ESP, Part II (Proceed and Follow Up)

Circle: What is a positive situation in which you might find the ESP process useful? What is a time when you were trying to make a decision between good options? (ESP can help with positive situations and not just challenging dilemmas)

Skill Introduction: Present and discuss the "Proceed and Follow-Up" sections of the "ESP Form" as you did with the Evaluate and Select sections last week.

Use the annotated version of the form to help illustrate.

Journal Reflection: Planning is important in everyday life. People use planning to do things like learn new skills, get better grades, build stronger relationships, join clubs or teams, apply to college, or choose jobs. Brainstorm about times in your life right now where planning could be especially helpful. Is there a connection between the extra time one takes to plan and self-control? Explain.
