In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we’re sharing this gem of a video from the Excelano Project at the University of Pennsylvania. Excelano is a spoken word poetry group focusing on mental health awareness and empowerment. And we certainly can’t describe them any better than they do:
“This group is about finding voice. It is dedicated to the power of the mic and using personal experience to touch the lives of audience members. It’s about breaking down barriers. It’s about holding a speaker up to life’s white noise, to find that every one of us can be heard.”
Watch and listen to “Tomorrow Will Come Again, I Promise,” and promise to share it with your students!
Teach students the steps of successful problem-solving and then watch them apply their new skills with real-life scenarios. Begin by downloading this PDF on Problem Solving Activity. You’ll get resources for Seven Steps to Solving a Problem Effectively, a problem-solving organizer, and six different workplace problem-solving scenarios for your students to try.
What they’ll practice: Problem-solving skills, communication, critical thinking skills, and respect
