Each group should sort the scenarios in your packets into 3 different piles according to the categories listed above. Please tally the number of scenarios in each group.

Group members should discuss their reasonings for placement in the different categories. It is okay if people have different ways of looking at the different situations!

  • Metacognition Component (Evaluating and Applying Concepts): Quick Write

Choose the biggest barrier to your success. Is it potentially a self-inflicted damage, homicide, or accident? What strategies will you use to survive and thrive?

  • Choose a possible scenario from your own life. Label it as a self-inflicted damage, homicide, or accident. Describe the situation. Adopting an attitude that privileges an internal locus of control mindset, explain how you could respond to this situation. In your explanation, be certain to use one of the terms from Habits of Mind
