Paying Attention to Life Skills as Part of Regular Instructional Practice

Zoe Zmuda — a sophomore in high school — created this YouTube video as a culminating artifact to reflect on how education leaders (from classroom to consultant) pay attention to life skills as part of regular instructional practice.

Points discussed within the video:

  • the many types of life skills that should be fostered from an early age
  • why these skills are crucial for students and later in life, and how they correspond to Habits of Mind
  • balancing students’ need to work alone versus working with others in the classroom
  • keeping students engaged while building life skills
  • modeling communication and collaboration

Thank you Lorena Kelly, Mary Manley, and Bena Kallick for contributions.
