When we have to take a test, sometimes we can experience emotions that are complicated. We might feel nervous or stressed, even if we studied and we know the material. We can feel this way because we want to do well on the test. (These feelings don’t mean that you WON’T do well!) Some people call these feelings "test anxiety." When we know how to deal with these emotions, we increase our chances of performing well on the test. One strategy that you can use in a situation like this is...
Students will improve their understanding of mindfulness (taking notice of things happening around us and inside of our bodies) and will learn and practice mindful breathing in a simulated testing scenario (guided visualization).
During my 15 years as an elementary school educator, I completed the training necessary to obtain the Gifted Education Endorsement. Among other topics, this training includes 60 hours focused on the "Nature and Needs of Gifted Students" (identifying cognitive, social, and emotional characteristics common to individuals who are gifted), as well as 60 hours focused on "Guidance and Counseling for the Gifted." The past five years of my teaching career have been spent as a gifted specialist where my primary role has been to develop and teach lessons based on the social and emotional needs of gifted students. I have delivered these lessons to kindergarten through fifth grade students in groups of varying sizes across a number of diverse schools. I have experience teaching these lessons in both brick-and-mortar settings as well as virtual classroom environments.
Having paper and pencil (or any writing/drawing utensil) handy will be helpful during the wrap-up portion of the class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will discuss the concept of test anxiety in this class; however, this should not be viewed as counseling or therapy. The class is intended to be educational and informative in nature.
The visualization used in this class is based around the principals of an activity from the "Ultimate Mindfulness Activity Book" by Christian Bergstrom.
