Weekly Journals

Table of Contents

Series 1 Secondary Level


These journals foster purposeful exploration and reflection. Below you will find 36 journal pages that correspond to the Weekly Themes for Project Wisdom Series 1. They are listed in alphabetical order and represent specific values as well as the benefits or application of those values. Although a Best Practice for implementation is to use these in conjunction with either weekly or monthly themes, many schools do not use the themes and narrate the messages from beginning to end. In that case, you can simply choose journal pages at random. Schools use these journals in advisor/advisee and language arts, as well as during detention and in-school suspension. For example, when a student is making poor choices, you might ask him or her to complete the journal page titled "Choices: Choosing What's Right" and then use it as a springboard for discussion.
