Sequence of Plan

Time (approx) (40 min)

Modality (visual, auditory, tactile, motor) auditory

Grouping Pattern (1-1, 2s, 3-5, 2-3 groups, whole group)

Anticipatory Set:

Start class by reading and displaying the quote by Ben Franklin, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Have students do a Think Pair Share for 1 minute to discuss what that means and then call on students to give their ideas. Connect this to last lesson as coping comes after but prevention comes before. Teacher will lead class in explaining prevention vs. coping. Draw a timeline on the board of prevention on the left, stress in the middle, and coping on the right. Teacher may have to give examples of prevention to get students thinking.

Guided Practice (Modeling):

Independent Practice:

Have students use guided notes to fill out the graphic teacher put on the board. As a class, brainstorm ideas to put under each category (prevent, stressor, and coping). Aim to come up with at least 4 prevention ideas. Also have a student look up the definition of prevention and put it on the board/in notes as well. Challenge students to create a short story, a comic strip, or a poem about preventing stress. For all types of expression- have students aim to explain preventing stress, contrast it to coping, and give two examples of how to prevent stress. Review the definitions and preventing stress. Our next 3 lessons will focus on ways to live, think, and act healthy to prevent stress.
