Teaching Emotional Literacy

Here’s 5 things you can do to teach emotional literacy to your students:

  1. Read this quote by Aldous Huxley to your students “There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving – and that is your own self.”
  2. Ask them to write 2 or 3 sentences on what the quote means to them personally.
  3. Open the floor with a full classroom discussion on what the quote means and why it might be a quotable quote.
  4. Have students make a section in their binders called, ‘Personal Insights’. Invite students to reflect on their ‘corner of the universe’ using the following questions,
    • What is one thing I would like to improve in my ‘corner of the universe’ or my behavior?
    • What do I need to do to improve in this area?
  5. Close each day with 5 minutes of reflection:
    • How did I do with my improvement goal today?
    • What worked?
    • Where would I like to improve tomorrow?
