7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens

Unit 6 Changes and Choices


Reading Requirements To prepare for the changes and choices you have before you, we will discuss themes and ideas related to habits, choices, and changes. For this next unit, we will embark on a new kind of book club using the text The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey. Each student will be responsible for reading and taking notes on the first chapter or habit as an entire class. The remainder of the text will be divided up into six parts. Each student will be responsible for reading and taking notes on the assigned text in class. Afterward, students will work with those assigned the same text and teach a chapter or habit to the rest of the students. Chapter Notes Each student will complete a set of Cornell Notes following the guidelines on the PowerPoint presented. The headings in the chapter will become the important ideas and the information provided under each heading will become details to share later in the group project. Students will be given a formative grade for notes and a summative grade for the summary/reflection. Group Presentation Project Together with members from his or her group, each student will put together a presentation over the assigned chapter or habit. The purpose of this assignment is to not only inform fellow classmates on the information provided in each assigned chapter, but to also show an understanding of the audience (teenagers) and can use tones, formats, styles and activities that accurately meet the needs of the audience. Each presentation will include the following: 1. A PowerPoint presentation covering the information in the chapter. 2. A handout with fill-in-the-blank notes so classmates can follow along with the presentation 3. An in-class activity (nothing that requires homework) that explores the main idea of the chapter. a. Discussion Questions b. Game c. Any other activity that covers the main idea 4. Ten question quiz (a blank quiz and an answer key) that accurately assesses how well your classmates learned the information from your chapter. 5. A poster( no larger than 11x14) that gives a visual representation of your habit.
