WELLBEING- LESSON 2-
WHEEL TO WELLBEING
PART 1- (5 MINUTES)
- "students who thrive and flourish demonstrate stronger academic performance" (Norrish, Williams, O'Connor and Robinson, 2013).
- elements of wellbeing can be developed through specific evidence-based actions (Seligman, 2011).
- the wheel to wellbeing gives some tangible ways to improve wellbeing.
By the end of this lesson, learners should:
- understand the wheel to wellbeing and the 6 components
- commit to taking action in one area to improve their wellbeing
PART 2- watch to introduce concept- (5 MINUTES)
PART 3- CREATE A WELLBEING WHEEL- (15-20 MINUTES)
- Go to the “six ways to wellbeing” website here. In pairs, explore the website in order to complete the two points below.
- Use a full size page in your workbook and create your own wellbeing wheel (each person records this individually).
- Label each section, then scroll down the page and read about some of the actions people can take in each of the six areas. Then record 4 or 5 things people can do to enhance their wellbeing for each part of the wellbeing wheel.
PART 4- ACROSTIC POEM- (10 MINUTES)
- Form pairs or groups of three.
- Create an acrostic poem for the word "WELLBEING". The word selected for each letter should resemble either an action that enhances wellbeing, or something that describes a sense of wellbeing.
- Teachers to facilitate sharing with the class. If students are incomplete, they could listen for the ideas of others, in order to complete their own acrostic poem.
PART 5- COMMIT TO WELLBEING- (5-10 MINUTES)
- Decide on one area of your wellbeing (from the wheel to wellbeing) that you would like to focus on improving over the next couple of weeks.
- Record the specific action you will take in this area and also when and where you are going to do it?
- You should use what you learned in Module 2 to complete the T.A.O.P. process in your workbook for setting and striving for this wellbeing target.
