Look for Good Project
This scientifically backed Gratitude Campaign helps parents and teachers to unite around kindness, inspired by the leadership of their own children.
Why the Look for Good Project?
As part of a renewed focus on positive student interactions and behaviors, we have initiated our own Look for Good Project. Through this initiative, students are taught the meaning of gratitude, and how we can use this understanding to support people across our school and community. Research tied to this project suggests that it dramatically improves positive student interactions, while also reduces bullying incidences. As a whole, we have an incredibly positive and supportive school culture, but that does not mean we cannot do better as we continue to learn more about social-emotional development and its impact on young people.
What will students be doing?
Roll out of the first phase of our Look For Good Project began with our gratitude wall in the lobby. All classrooms across the school participated in the initial rollout—learning about the motivation of the project, the meaning of gratitude, and enjoying a school-wide read aloud, Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers.
After the initial rollout, students were introduced to our newly defined five core values that will drive interpersonal interactions across the school (see the matrix below). Each month students focus on one value, with a school-wide read aloud text and ongoing activities aligned to it.
