How to Make the Most of Your Teen Years

Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(228)
In this multi-day class, students will learn ways they can make the most of their teenage years, how to find opportunities as well as manage challenges during this important time in their lives.

Class experience

Students will be better informed about the opportunities and pressures  that affect teenagers, and how to move forward with a plan, by setting goals and using certain tools to help navigate this period in their lives. 
I am trained in Life Skills and have a BA in Communication Studies. I have taught mindfulness and self-esteem, self-acceptance and communications to university and college students (e.g. Indigenous students who have experienced trauma and negative educational experiences), with correctional centre inmates and psychiatric patients.  In addition. I currently teach a number of life skills courses on Outschool such as managing social anxiety, use of social media, self-esteem, mindfulness and meditation and effective communication.  My teaching experience in other classes, discussions and my own knowledge gained from working in a variety of environments  will prepare me for dealing with this topic in an effective and sensitive way.  
There are no expectation or specific materials required for this class.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
In my introduction, I will emphasize the fact that information in the class is meant to be general, and not include individual specific experiences of students. If students' do begin to share any personal or sensitive information, I will, without discounting or demeaning the student, repeat the earlier instructions and redirect back to the previous discussion. The goal is to validate students' feelings and perceptions without invading their privacy or upsetting the other students. 
The following articles and chapters cover a range of perspectives, including parent, educator and teenager points of view. .
