  • 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens

    Is a book by Sean Covey that provides the opportunity to explore

    the development of positive habits that help secure and maintain a

    productive life.

    I teach this class two days a week as a related arts class for the 8th


    Habits are things we do repeatedly, but most of the time we are

    hardly aware that we have them. Some habits are good such as:


    Planning ahead

    And some are not so good:

    Staying up late at night


    Blaming others

    Some habits do not matter:

    Reading magazines from back to front

    Eating pudding with a fork

    We look at habits that will help them to do well in school.

    HABIT 1 Be Proactive

    HABIT 2 Begin with the End in Mind

    HABIT 3 Put First Things First

  • HABIT 4 Think Win Win

    HABIT 5 Seek first to Understand, Then to be Understood

    HABIT 6 Synergize

    HABIT 7 Sharpen the Saw

    One of Coveys favorite quote comes from Bob Moawad which states,

    You cant make footprints in the sands of time by sitting on your butt, And who wants to leave buttprints in the sands of time?
