04a. The Successful Mind for School, Work and Life: Leader's Guide - Secondary years 9 - 12

The Successful Mind for School, Work and Life is a 10-session course designed for upper secondary students to prepare them for their final years in school, pre-employment and part-time work experiences and for life beyond school.

The digital Leader's Guide contains background information and a session plan needed to conduct each of the 10 sessions.

A distinctive feature of this course is its suitability to be delivered in career education classes with content linked to the CORE Skills for Work framework.

Sessions

  1. Growth Mindset
  2. Character Strength
  3. Goal Setting
  4. Resilience
  5. Mindfulness
  6. Self-acceptance
  7. Optimism
  8. GRIT
  9. Time Management
  10. Getting Along

Schools need to purchase a student handbook (4b. on the catalogue) for each participating student.

There is a psychological and neuro-scientific research-based foundation of the successful mind course. The collective work of cognitive-behavioural psychologists (Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, Martin Seligman, Carol Dweck, Angela Duckworth) has identified a range of both positive and negative attitudes that determine the ways people think (self-talk), feel and behave. CASEL and ACARA have identified core social-emotional skills incorporated in this program as well: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and social management.

A successful mind is strengthened in young people through a variety of learning activities employed in this course including structured learning activities combined with small group interaction, discussion and application.

07. Attitudes and Behaviours for Learning (AB4L): A Professional Development Program to Offer at Your School

The Attitudes and Behaviours for Learning Program (AB4L) is a staff development program for conducting in-house by a member of staff to relevant teachers. The program includes an online guide providing information and handouts for holding staff development sessions at school and a PowerPoint presentation demonstrating the background and content of the program including the different AB4L teaching practices.

International research continues to reveal that the quality of classroom instruction directly influences the development of students’ academic skills and achievement. However, as seen below the impact of instruction is enhanced (or inhibited) by students’ attitudes, and social-emotional skills for learning (SEL’s).
AB4L

Goals of the AB4L Professional Development Program: 

  • To increase knowledge of the role students’ attitudes and social-emotional skills play in their engagement and learning. 
  • To learn about a group of attitudes and behaviours for learning that research indicates as having a major influence on student engagement in learning and in their development of their literacy, numeracy and other academic skills.
  • To learn how to integrate the AB4L program in the teaching of literacy, numeracy and other key learning areas in order to increase student engagement and achievement.

Published research indicates that the AB4L teaching program strengthens students’ attitudes and social-emotional skills needed for engagement, cooperative learning, independent classwork and homework and leads to an improvement in reading comprehension of students in the lower 50% of achievement.

  1. Develop the positive mindset of students
  2. Share with students the goals/targets of the lesson and have them set their own learning goals
  3. Identify behaviours for learning
  4. Discuss positive and negative self-talk for learning
  5. Communicate behaviour-specific feedback for learning

AB4L enables a student to:

 

  • Begin their lessons with a positive mindset 
  • Set a goal for what they want to learn during the class period 
  • Apply behaviours for learning throughout lessons and during homework (e.g., staying calm when they don’t understand what the teacher is explaining, raising their hand to answer a difficult question; staying on task and not being distracted by others when working independently)
  • Employ positive rather than negative self-talk when faced with schoolwork that is hard or when making mistakes

08. Investing in Parents (parent education classes to offer at your school)

This program contains a collection of parent education skill-building sessions designed to:

  • Reduce parent stress and increase parent wellbeing
  • Strengthen essential parenting skills related to relationship building, discipline, motivation and social-emotional learning
  • Develop socially and emotionally highly competent children and adolescents

The evidence is clear to see. Parent education has a positive impact on parent stress, parent effectiveness and directly impacts children’s achievement and wellbeing. As such, schools have an important role to play in connecting their parent community to the vast literature on effective parenting by offering regular talks and workshops on different parenting practices. 

Presented to groups of parents during the day or after school, the sessions generally consist of a mini-lecture presentation, discussion, and activities.

We have also found that parents can also perform in the role of the leader in taking responsibility for the delivery of the sessions.

In consultation with their parent community, schools can select one or more sessions to offer parents throughout the school year.

Sessions are designed to be presented to groups of parents of any size and take between 60 – 90 minutes to present.

The topics and content covered in Investing in Parents fall into three categories: positive parents, effective parents, and positive children. The content included in each parent session is based on an extensive study of what international research in the fields of parenting, child development and related fields has discovered about ways that parents socialise and influence their achievement and wellbeing.

Positive Parents

The first sessions have a focus on parents, their goals and aspirations, the importance of their self-efficacy, parenting styles and their effects on children as well as how to manage stress and be resilient.

    • Session 1 - Parenting today: what do you want for your children?
    • Session 2 - The parenting style that matters most: ‘Authoritative’
    • Session 3 - Avoid common mistakes that parents can make (ineffective parenting)
    • Session 4 - Parent stress management and resilience

Effective Parents

The following sessions deal with different parenting practices related to parent-child relationships and communication, different ways parents can become involved with their children’s education, how parents can understand and cater for their children’s developing interests and different ways they can motivate their children.

    • Session 5 - Develop positive relationships with your children
    • Session 6 - Be involved in your children's education
    • Part A: Show interest
    • Part B: Manage homework
    • Part C: Tutor your child
    • Part D: Steps to take if your child underachieves
    • Session 7 - Provide children responsibility and involve them in decision-making
    • Session 8 - Provide activities that accommodate children's interests
    • Session 9 - How to motivate your children

Positive Children

The final sessions deal with how parents can teach their children social-emotional learning skills and develop character through teaching values and strengths.

10. Stress Management for Teachers and Principals: A Professional Development Program

This is a professional development resource for individual study (stress management booklets, audio programs and cards). Additionally, it is designed to be part of a staff wellbeing program with content shared regularly at meetings and coaching sessions by professional development and school leaders who have responsibility for principal, teacher and staff wellbeing.

Michael Bernard shares what he has learned from coaching stressed teachers and principals, conducting professional development stress management workshops at schools, his experiences in working with teachers and principals retired from teaching due to stress worked, his own published research on stress-creating attitude and his earlier book, Taking the Stress Out of Teaching.

In this stress management series, an emphasis is placed on what you can do to take the stress out of your work. It incorporates the latest research in the field of neuroscience that has identified the importance of the pre-frontal cortex of your brain –sometimes called your inner CEO - as the source of resilience you need to combat stress. Many of the strategies described for managing stress are designed to activate and strengthen the pre-frontal cortex.

WAYS TO USE THIS STRESS MANAGEMENT SERIES

Teachers and others can be made aware of the availability of the program and its content and can be encouraged to download booklets, listen online to audio programs and identify stress-cards for personal study.

Throughout the school year, professional development sessions can be held either at a staff meeting or as a stand-alone session on different topics covered in this stress management program.

If a first- or second-year teacher has had little or no exposure to stress management and best practices for it management, it is strongly suggested that as part of a school’s induction program, teachers with the support of a mentor work through the program and developing as part of their individual professional development plan, areas of stress management to strengthen (e.g., relaxation, classroom management).
