To Thine Own Self Be True, a Lesson on Identity
Amazing day at teaching! I told my students that in order for them to establish good relationships with others and put in place a plan for their lives that they needed to know themselves. "To thine own self be true." I gave them a questionnaire and then they shared their responses willingly. *Favorite color *Name one of your gifts *Name one thing that makes you unique *If you could make school a place where you did nothing but practice at what you want to be as a professional, what would you spend your whole day doing? *If you could make school a place where you focused all day on learning one thing what would it be? *If you could be guaranteed a Best-selling book and make 2 million dollars at it, what would you write about? *If you could write, produce and direct the next box-office hit, what would it be about and who would star in it? *If you could sit down for 2 hours with a historical figure who would it be? *Name your super hero (fictional characters not allowed) Who is extraordinary? *Who thinks you are a super hero?
