Checking In

This is a unit from the Relationships Initiative Curriculum. See the full resource collection on the curriculum’s homepage.

The activities in this section give students an opportunity to become more invtouch with their own emotions, feelings, hopes, challenges and fears. The goal is to create intentional space in the classroom for students to share where they are in the moment so that educators can respond appropriately to the mood of the room. These activities require moderate levels of vulnerability. Plan to use them regularly throughout the semester for a quick and easy way to provide space for sharing or to get feedback on how an assignment or day is going.
