Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can have students complete the happiness assessment at the beginning of each month and record their results. As students complete multiple assessments, they will be able to track changes in their happiness. Teachers can have students journal responses to the changes, and sample journal prompts include: (1) What has changed in your life that affected your happiness? (2) If you were going to improve your happiness in one area based on these results, what would it be? (3) Do you agree with the results and/or trends you’ve seen in your happiness assessment?
  2. Teachers can give students time to browse the quotes about happiness in this app. Afterward, teachers can have students paraphrase the quote or explain what the quote means to them. Students can complete the paraphrase or explanation orally or in writing.
  3. After becoming familiar with the types of quotes included in this app, teachers can have students write their own happiness quotes that model the ones found in this app, and post them to a class website. Teachers can have students respond to their classmate’s quotes by stating: (1) if they agreed or disagreed with the quote, (2) if they found meaning in the quote, and (3) if and/or how they could apply the quote to their life.
  4. Teachers can have students complete a section in the “Creating Happiness” tab and analyze their choices. To do so, students can select an area for focus and then complete all the prompts. Afterward, students can review their selections and then write a journal that explains if their choices do or do not reflect them.
