After all, everyone needs to know that they are seen, that they are heard and that they matter.
Below are a few tips and tricks that may provide support as you journey through the theme activities.
The Core Content was built to establish a Foundation of intra/interpersonal communication & relationship building then move into specific Practices of the I AM Noticed Cycle which leads to the Outcome of Confidence and Resilience. The core content was designed to allow participants to experience the Foundation, the Practice and the outcome within each focus.
The Core Content provides engaging activities that can be led by staff or I AM Noticed peer models. The goal is to use the core content on a consistent basis throughout the school year.
Here is how it works:
There are 7 focuses within this core content.
Click on the first focus below (Introduction and Discovery) to access the Foundation, Practice and Outcome activities. Your goal is to complete all three activities before you move to the next focus. The time for each activity can vary. Most activities were designed to fit into class meeting times of 20-40 minutes. In addition to the core content, you can find additional content below.
Additional Content is full of goodness. It includes inspirational word swags and bulletin boards that may be used as positive visual tools in your classroom or throughout your school. Word swags might also be used on social media posts and for email signatures. You'll also find additional Practices that can be used after the core content to provide additional enrichment. An intentional grouping of practices that create a ripple from self to class family to the world and back to self may be a strong tool that can be utilized.
Look for Quick Tips throughout the core content for helpful suggestions and encouragement. We've got your back. You are not alone.
