This course provides an overview of exploring a Path to Purpose with students. Purpose-finding is the art of reflecting, asking questions, and discussing what one’s purpose in life is, and is linked to positive behaviors:
- Lessening anxiety.
- Bolstering community connections.
- Stronger personal academic performance and goal-seeking.
- Better connections and communal behavior, such as environmentalism.
- Among many, many more (as you’ll soon learn!)
Notably, when we say “exploring a Path to Purpose”, this is not the same as a “genius hour” or “passion” activities. The goal of purpose-finding is to think about one’s place in life and how one fits into an overarching narrative. During this course, you will be presented with four major concepts:
- The “Why”: Understanding the research and background of purpose-finding.
- The “How”: Looking at how to implement purpose-finding into a classroom.
- Implementation: Seeing examples of purpose-finding, as well as templated resources.
- Spreading the Practice: Synthesizing all information toward expanding the practice beyond the classroom.
Following this course, you will be provided a certification that may be used with your continuing learning program toward professional development credit. Please check with your administrative team if this course satisfies your school’s accreditation program.
