New Year, Renewed Focus

Welcome Back!  

The calendar has turned to a new year, a new decade and new opportunity for anything and everything. As educators we are back from the break and ready to continue this school year. It’s great to see you!!

We thought it would be helpful and fun to provide two 1-minute videos to inspire your students to action. Both are activities in the Lead4Change lessons.

This week, try these activities when your students need a simple refocus on strategies for success!


One Minute on 2020 Goals

Use the Lead4Change Elevator Speech activity to have your students prepare a short "elevator speech" about their goals for 2020. It can be personal or tied to the class or project.  

This is a great tool to focus and sharpen thinking, writing, speaking and sharing information.

Watch the 1-minute instructional video and then get started. Enjoy!


Recognize & Appreciate

The Lead4Change lessons teach students to always recognize and appreciate those who help them along the way. 

The Recognition activity is simple but powerful for reinforcing the need to say "Thank You."  

Try this activity with your students. Have them use this exercise for any recognition you choose. 

Some ideas might be:

  • One person in the school who has positively impacted them
  • One service provider in the school who may not get enough appreciation
  • Someone in the class who demonstrates positive behavior or mentors others
  • A parent or relative who makes their access to education and activities easier

Watch the 1-minute instructional video and then get started. 

Thank YOU for teaching this important skill.
