  • BE ALL YOU CAN BE! Our success in every aspect of our life - studies, jobs, sports, friendship, love. - is strongly determined by our own self-image. People who have confidence in their personal worth seem to be magnets for success and happiness. To use the imagery of the English poet William Blake, they “catch joy on the wing." Can we change our self-image? YES! Anyone can change his/her self-perception. A person with low self-image is not doomed to a life of unhappiness and failure. It is possible to get rid of negative attitudes and gain the confidence needed to realize one's dreams. SIX STEPS TO BOOST YOUR SELF-CONCEPT FIRST STEP FOCUS ON YOUR POTENTIAL: NOT YOUR LIMITATIONS Remember you have enough strengths, good qualities and talents to live a happy, fulfilled life. MY TALENTS MY QUALITIES OF THE HEART AND MIND 1. 1. 2. 2. 3. 3. 4. 4. 5. 5. 6. 6. 7. 7. 8. 8.

  • FOURTH STEP BREAK AWAY FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S EXPECTATIONS It is a liberating step when we decide to stop being what other people (parents, teachers, relatives, friends) want us to be. Struggling to live up to other's expectations can have the most crippling effect on us. 1. List 3 expectations other 2. people have of you: 3. FIFTH HAVE BIG DREAMS STEP Think BIG!

  • THE STORY OF THE EAGLE Once upon a time, while walking through the forest, a certain man found a young eagle; he took it home and put it in his barnyard where it soon learned to eat chicken feed and to behave as chickens behave.One day a naturalist, who was passing by, inquired of the owner why it was that the eagle, the king of the birds, should be confined to live in a barnyard with chickens.“Since I have given it chicken feed and trained it to live as a chicken, it has never learned to fly”, replied the owner. “It behaves as chickens behave, so it is no longer an eagle.” “Still”, insisted the naturalist, “it has the heart of an eagle and can surely be taught to fly”. After talking it over, the two men agreed to find out whether this was possible. Gently the naturalist took the eagle in his arms and said, “You belong to the sky, not to the earth. Stretch forth your wings and fly;” The eagle however was confused, he did not know who he was, and seeing the chickens eating their food, he jumped down to be with them again. Undismayed, the naturalist took the eagle next day up on the roof of the house, and urged him again saying: “You are an eagle, stretch forth your wings and fly:” But the eagle was afraid of his unknown self and the world, and jumped down once more for the chicken feed. On the third day, the naturalist rose early and took the eagle out of the barnyard, up to a high mountain. There he held the king of the birds high above him and encouraged him again, saying: “You are an eagle, stretch forth your wings and fly:” The eagle looked around, back towards the barnyard and up to the sky. Then the naturalist lifted him straight towards the sun, and it happened that the eagle began to tremble. Slowly he stretched out his wings. At last with a triumphant cry, he soared away into the heavens. It may be that the eagle still remembers the chickens with nostalgia; it may even be that he occasionally revisits the barnyard. But as far as anyone knows, he has never returned to lead the life of a chicken. QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSSION 1. What is it that struck you the most in the story? 2. Can you see likeness to yourself with the eagles? Why? 3. In what areas of your life are you struggling to be free? 4. What are you doing to bring about freedom? 5. In what area (areas) of your life have you experienced freedom? (What are the factors, such as persons, circumstances, events, etc. that are responsible for it) 6. What is the point of the last paragraph? 7. What is the necessary condition for person (including you) to obtain true freedom? 8. “You must be where you belong “what do these words mean? What reactions and sentiments do they evoke in you? EAGLE’S SONG I'd like to tell the story about an eagle Who chained so long to stick upon the ground? Day by day he struggled round in circles. Till wandered up to walking round and round. When his master finally choose to give him freedom He took off the metal ring that kept him bound And tossed him high to spread his wings to fly But the bird just flipped flopped right back to the ground. CH. No more chains no more bird hand But he will ride back to his right again Began the same old strut again Just the same old habit kept him bound. 2. So many people today are like that eagle Who knows the truth could loose them from their chains. When freedom calls them all to a new horizon. They jump right back to their rut again. CH. 3. Well it’s better to fly into the sky of freedom To break free from the old and sail on to the new So don't forget the sad story of the eagle Don't ever let, the same thing happen to you. CH.

  • GET USED TO ME Curriculum Areas: Guidance / Values Value Orientation: Self-affirmation springs from an appreciation of one’s personal worth and dignity. STORY ORIENTATION: A story of a shy, plain - looking girl’s struggle to accept herself and affirm her own worth. Super sensitive Kay is excluded from class games and laughed at for liking her father’s work, which is collecting garbage. She faces a very difficult dilemma: Whether to assert herself as she is, or change her personality to fit other people’s expectations. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: (After Viewing) 1. Early in the film Kay tells her father that she doesn’t have a lot of friends. Why do you think this might be so? What kind of a girl would you describe her as being? 2. In the first playground scene Kay walks alone. What do you think she was feeling? How do you think the other kids felt? 3. Describe the classroom scene. What might Kay have been feeling then? What were the other kids thinking and feeling? What would you have done? 4. When Kay visits the garbage dump with her Father and Andy, what might have been foremost in her mind? What tells you that? What does her father say about his attitude towards his work? 5. Kay tells her father that the kids laughed at her, at him, and at Andy. Do you think they really did that? Why or why not? How do you think they really did that? Why or why not? Why do you think that kids sometimes laugh at others? How do you think the child who is being laughed at feels? 6. When Kay comes to the playground the second time, she enters the dodge ball game, what, do you think, makes her do that? What kinds of feelings do you think she might be experiencing as she takes her place at the wall?

THE FOOTBALL GAME CRISIS
  • FACT SHEET Mr. Marshall, a senior maths teacher, gave his students of IX std. their monthly test. The test covered most of the material to date since Mr. Marshall was dissatisfied with the class performance. Mr. Marshall caught Robert and James, two borderline students, cheating in the exam. He gave them each a failing grade which made them scholastically ineligible to play football. Robert played, as goalkeeper for two years and James was a star center forward of the team. The inter- school football shield had been won by the school consecutively for the last two years and will be the school’s permanent heritage if it emerges champion this year as well. Robert and James went to meet Mr. Marshall. They told him that the game, they had to play on Saturday was crucial towards winning the championship and asked him not to have them dropped from the team. Mr. Marshall how ever told them that honesty and a good education were more important than sports. He refused to change his decision. Coach Martin was informed that Robert and James had just become scholastically ineligible to play football. Following the school policy, the coach sent a memo to Robert and James telling them that they would not be able to play in Saturday’s game. About one third of the students held a protest rally outside Mr. Marshall’s office. Team members, angered over the action, met secretly to plan a course of action. You are members of a particular group of the school - The Basketball team, The Sports Club, The Classmates of James and Robert, The Football team, or the Staff of the School. With the Fact Sheet and the Additional Details available, you are to make a STATEMENT giving adequate reasons. Remember, the students of the school are watching to see how this difficulty is resolved: (1) If Robert and James are ‘let off ’ it is likely to encourage some more students to follow their example. (2) If a strong stand is taken, there is bound to be a violent demonstration by some of the students, especially the football fans who are keen on winning the trophy for the third consecutive year. (3) Are there any other options possible?

  • PERSONS ARE GIFTS Persons are gifts which the Creator God sends to us ... wrapped. Some come wrapped very beautifully, some in very ordinary wrapping paper. Some persons are very loosely wrapped, others very tightly. Sometimes the gift has been mishandled in the mail. Once in a while there is a special delivery! But the wrapping is not the gift! It is so easy to make that mistake; It’s amusing when babies do. Some person-gifts are very easy to open up; Others need to be helped out of their boxes. Is it because they are afraid? Do they think it might hurt to be opened? Maybe they have been opened up before and thrown away! Could it be that their gift is not for me? I am a person. Therefore, I am a gift, too! A gift to myself, first of all, God my Creator gave myself to me! Have I ever really looked inside the wrapping? Am I afraid to? Perhaps I’ve never accepted the gift that I am. Could it be that there is something else inside the wrappings than what I think is there? Maybe I’ve never seen the wonderful gift that I am. Could God’s gift be anything but beautiful? I love the gifts, which those who love me give to me. Why not the gift of me? And I am a gift to other persons. Am I willing to given to others? To be a person for others? Do others have to be content with the wrapping? Never permitted to enjoy the gift? Every meeting of persons is an exchange of gifts. Love is a relationship between persons who see themselves as they really are: Gifts given by God to be given to others. Author unknown.

  • THE GIVING TREE Once there was a tree…. And she loved a little girl. And everyday the girl would come and she would gather her leaves and make them into crowns and play king of the forest. She would climb up her trunk and swing from her branches and eat apples. And they would play hide seek. And when she was tired, she would sleep in her shade. And the girl loved the tree … very much. And the tree was happy. But time went by, and girl grew older. And the tree was often alone. Then one-day the girl came to the tree and the tree said: “Come child, come and climb upon my trunk and swing from my branches and at apples and play in my shade and be happy. But the girl said: “I am too big to climb and play. I want to buy a thing and have fun. I want some money Can you give me some money? “I am sorry, but I have no money. I have only leaves and apples. Take my apples girl, and sell them in the city. Then you will have some money and you will be happy.” And so the girl climbed the tree and gathered her apples and carried them away. And the tree was happy. But the girl stayed away for a long time… and the tree was sad. And then one day the girl came back and the tree shook with joy and she said: “Come girl climb up my trunk and swing from my branches and be happy.” “I am too busy to climb the trees. I want a house to keep me warm. I want a husband and I want children, and so I need a house. Can you give me a house?” “I have no house. The forest is my house, but you may cut off my branches and built a house, then you will be happy. And so the girl cut off her branches and carried them away to build her house. And the tree was happy. But the girl stayed away for a long time… And when she came back, the tree was so happy, she could hardly speak. She whispered. “Come girl. Come play.” “I am too old and sad to play. I want a boat that will take me far away from here. Can you give me a boat?” “Cut down my trunk and make a boat. Then you can sail away… and be happy.” And so the girl cut down her trunk and made a boat and sailed away. And the tree was happy, happy… but not really. After a long time the girl came back again. And the tree said: “I am sorry girl, but I have nothing left to give you. My apples are gone.”
  • “My teeth are too weak for apples “My branches are gone, you cannot swing on them…” “I am too old to swing on the branches.” “My trunk is gone, you cannot climb…” “I am too tired to climb” The tree signed and said: “I am sorry, I wish I could give you something”… “I don’t need very much now, just a quite place to sit and rest. I am very tired.” Straightening her up as she could, the tree said: “Well, an old stump is good for sitting and resting. Come girl, and sit down. Sit down and rest.” And the girl did. And the tree was happy. THE GIVING TREE 1. Did the tree love the girl? How can you make it out? 2. Did you like the behavior of the girl? Why? 3. How much should we give and for how long? 4. Can you apply this parable to your own life? Give instance. Mention five persons whose lives can be compared to the Giving Tree.

  • The Situation Your group is responsible for the welfare of Human Ecology Communes throughout the world. These communes bring together a variety of different kinds of people from all areas of life to see if humans of widely differing backgrounds and outlooks can live together peacefully and productively. Suddenly you learn that the ‘life balance’ at one of these communes is dangerously upset because of unauthorized nuclear experimentation. The lives of all commune members are imperiled by radioactivity. You receive a desperate call from the leader of that commune asking for help. There are ten people at the commune, but enough water, food air and space in their anti- radiation shelter for only six of the people for three months. They know that, should they decide among them selves which six are to go into the shelter, they are likely to become irrational, even violent. That is why they are calling on you to determine which six are to be saved. They will abide by your decision. Your Part Your group at Human Ecology Headquarters has only 25 minutes to make its decision. If you delay, all member of the commune will perish from radioactivity. The six who are selected must be in their shelter in half an hour. You have to: (1) Choose six persons individually; (2) Choose six as a group, after a discussion. As help, you can rank in order of priority when you work alone. Information available This is all you know about the ten people; 1. Nuclear scientist, age 47 his careless experiments caused the dangerous radio- activity. 2. His wife, 35; four months pregnant. She has had one abortion. 3. A skilled manual worker 40 years old; illiterate. 4. A 20-year-old college girl. Student leader-gifted, but very proud. 5. A policeman with a gun; strong law-and-order man suspended from the police force for brutality. 6. Alcoholic priest; 50 years old. 7. A former Miss India, 40 years old. Flirt with a sharp tongue.
