In Spoken English class, I try to take every opportunity to help my students live intentionally and consider making healthy decisions. One activity I’m trying with them this term is a class focused on living a healthy lifestyle and dividing their time among the things most important to them. During this class, I plan to give each student a half-page worksheet with a list of life areas (eg. friends, family, romantic relationships, education, health and exercise, personal growth, volunteering, etc.) Students will be asked to use a wheel with several different slivers to represent how great a weight each of these things has in their ideal version of their life and consider whether this ideal is actually a healthy life.
After students divide their wheels, they will have a chance to present their work to their classmates and explain why they think this division of their time is appropriate. Their classmates will then have a chance to ask them two questions as a challenge or a point of further explanation.
