Monthly Themes: August - May
Using the Weekly Journals
Series 2 Secondary Level
Although many schools simply narrate the messages from beginning to end, the Best
Practice for implementation is using the Weekly or Monthly Themes and the corresponding Weekly Journals. This allows students
to reflect on messages they recently heard, and it provides the entire campus with a common focus.
If using Weekly or Monthly Themes isn't appropriate for your campus, you can simply choose journal pages at random. Schools use
these journals in advisor/advisee,. homeroom, 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: Doing The Right
Thing" and then use it as a springboard for discussion. For an alphabetized list, click here.
