Module 11

KNOW YOURSELF

Identifying your own and your friends’ strong points and using them to turn problematic situations into positive learning experiences

Activity 1

To fill in information about yourself in a table [LO 3.1]

To be done in pairs

  1. Use the two tables on page 2 to fill in the relevant information about yourself and your partner, without discussion or comparison. Try to be as honest as possible about yourself, and fair towards your partner.
  2. Exchange the tables in which you have evaluated yourselves. Explain your answers to each other.

  1. Exchange the tables in which you have evaluated your partner. Discuss again. Take care not to feel hurt by what has been said about you. Take special note that your partner might have made some positive remarks about you, which you had missed yourself.
  2. On your own table: circle your very best achievement/characteristic in pen, and your worst in pencil.
  3. Discuss with your partner how you could improve your best as well as your worst characteristic.
  4. Write one paragraph about your aim concerning your worst characteristic, and how you plan to change it (e.g. My worst characteristic trait is that I love to gossip. Every time, instead of saying something negative about another person, I am going to try and say something positive).
