Distinguishing what is within a student's control and those that are outside the realm of their influence can spark deep learnings about personal responsibility. Use the resource below (one template for each student) or simply using the whiteboard
available in the room. Prompt students to consider the kinds of things that they are able to control and/or influence, writing such in the center bubble.
Then, discuss those things that they can't control. Be sure to point out that we are responsible for those things that are within our control.
