Unit 3 Activity: With your class you will practice implementing the Consequence Strategy: “If/When-Then” Statements. Please create your own “If/When-Then” Statement worksheet that you will work with your students to complete. I have provided an example worksheet for you. Please create your own in a google document and email or share it with me.
Unit Reflective Journal
At the end of the unit, you will complete a reflection journal. In each journal reflection you will be expected to reflect on the questions:
1. What were your challenges throughout the lesson?
2. How can you apply what you learned in this lesson to your life (past, present, or future)?
3. What are you still curious or confused about?
Please write your reflection journal in a Google document and share it with me, the same document will be used throughout the entire course. You may design it however you would like, with the exception that you can clearly visualize a separation between each unit reflection journal.
