  1. The Butterfly Circus Lesson Design: Kathy Lehning, LHS, and Annette Brown, GVHS

  2. Essential Question How does our definition of ourselves influence our success?

  3. Quick Write Introduction A quick write is think time… therefore: Write nonstop (Our 1st idea is often not our best; let’s get to the good stuff!) Don’t worry about errors (Who has time to think about punctuation and spelling when writing non-stop?) If you get stuck… ask yourself: What is an example of this that I have observed? (in my life, in a book, in a movie…) Why do I think my claim is true? …and then keep writing

  4. Quick Write Explain how the way we feel about ourselves affects how others feel* about and treat us. Use observations and examples from your life to justify your claims. Finally, explain how the perceptions others are related to our own success? (3 min.) *feel=respect, honor, like, etc. Write nonstop without concern for punctuation or spelling errors. Remember that this writing is a thinking tool.

  5. Pair-Share Protocol 1. Locate your partner. Number yourselves #1 and #2--#1s speak first. 2. Demonstrate respect by listening actively and beingcourteous(four L’s plus “thanks”): *Look: face partner, make eye contact *Lean: lean forward and nod as appropriate. *Listen: demonstrate listening by repeating (some of), summarizingor commenting on what your partner said before you speak. *Low Voice: use a partner voice—loud enough for your partner but not others, to hear. *Thanks: Thank your partner for sharing his/her ideas. Be prepared to share either your own or your partner’s idea.

  6. Pair Share Speaker Objective: Share your observations and/orexperiences regarding how our feelings toward ourselves affect how others feel about us. Listener Objective: Compare partner’s ideas to your own andask clarifying questions. Reverse roles.Be prepared for a brief discussion.

  11. Essential Question How does our definition of ourselves influence our success?

  12. Steps toward Success Butterfly Circus demonstrates that a positive definition of ourselves is empowering. Your task now is examine how you define yourself. • Can you (should you) improve your personal definition? • Decide on one small change you can make to your personal definition, one way your words will demonstrate personal kindness. • Make a commitment to that small change. • Finally, predict how this change might improve your success.
