Determine your true colors

Determine Your True Colors

  • Look at the Colored Set of Four Cards, Front and Back

  • Which ones do you relate to most? Trust your gut, and quickly rank your dominating colors from 4 (most like you) to 1 (least like you)

  • Now rank each succeeding row on the chart from 4 (your natural self) to 1 (least natural for you), based on the descriptions by each box

  • Add up each columns to get your Primary True Color

  • Read more about your Primary True Color on the handout


Dividing into color groups

Dividing Into Color Groups

  • In groups of 3 or 4…discuss the following and share out with the whole group:

    “What do the other color groups need to know about us?”

    and

    “What color group gets under our skin the most and why?”


True colors in the classroom

True Colors in the Classroom…

  • As a teacher, classrooms include learners

    from each color group

    Blue, Orange, Gold& Green

  • Think about what this means for:

  • My students (how do they perform, what kind of learner are they…)

  • How I interact and plan instruction?

  • How do my students interact with each other?


Circle of viewpoints

Circle of Viewpoints

Consider your personality trait as a teacher and choose a True Color trait of a student:

  • “I am thinking of a student in my class who is…(gold, orange, green, or blue).”

  • “I think that…(take on the viewpoint of the person you identified above and how they might view school, your classroom, etc.).”

  • “I wonder…(ask a question from that same student’s view about the class, your teaching style, etc.).”

    Share…
