Our Middle School Principal has asked me to talk about ATLs in the middle school assembly, and to help his student assembly organizers to continue this weekly. I have decided to share the ideas of teachers in my school, (from my recent ATL training) on the two questions "What is the point of school" and "What does a lifelong learner look like?". I'll use these as a way to describe the Approaches to Learning, including why they are important. After this, I will zoom in and focus on "Practise strategies to reduce stress and anxiety" (Self-Management - Affective Skills). I'll end by showing them the app Headspace, and telling them how this can help them practice and develop this skill. After this, I'll ask students to reach out to the middle-school assembly organizers (students) if they have ideas they want to share in assembly.
Here is the presentation:
