SEL TIP of the Month

Provide a method for students to share their class stress level (e.g., 1 not stressed at all and 5 highly stressed) throughout the semester. You can use a quick anonymous poll procedure to gauge how stressed your students are feeling about certain tasks or projects. Use this information to provide additional clarity on tasks or projects, provide extra resources or arrange meeting opportunities to help alleviate some of their stress. 

Contributed by Dr. Jessica Hannigan.
