BEING A PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ONESELF
GROUP WORK SKILLS
“Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic.” -Art Carnegie
SUCCESS DEPENDS ON (YOUR) ENTHUSIASM
“Enthusiasm is contagious. Be a carrier.”- Susan Rabin
“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
GROUPS SHOULD INCLUDE ALL TYPES OF STUDENTS. I TRY TO INCLUDE ALL LEARNING STYLES AND LOOK AT STUDENT STRENGTHS----------- BUT BE CAREFUL, BECAUSE SOME WILL SURPRISE YOU!!
SELF-CONFIDENCE – My goal is that every student walks out of thehearing feeling successfulBEING A PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ONESELF-This experience may be the ONLY time in a student’s life that he is out in front- a part of a valuable discussionthat is about topics he might never have discussed otherwise
