Guidance Lesson to 7th Graders: Balancing Life Roles

Brian Tracy said, “Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance” (Brian Tracy Quotes – Inspirational Words of Wisdom n.d.).

Our first guidance lesson of the year was balancing life roles. The purpose of this lesson was to inform 7th graders of their roles as a Family Member, Community Member, Citizen, Student, and Individual. When students become self-aware of what roles they play in their life, they are better apt to recognize their thoughts, feelings, goals, and values in life. Furthermore, as students become aware of their roles in life and the goals and beliefs they value, they will also need to know how to balance and manage their time in these roles.

A few questions we asked our 7th graders to ponder:

  • What is your current level of time spent in each life role? (Family Member, Individual Leisure, Learner/Student, Worker, Citizen, Community Member).
  • What is your preferred level of time you want to spend in each life role?
  • What changes would you need to make in your life to spend your time in a way that would bring you greater satisfaction and accomplishment?
  • Will these changes help you reach your goals for the future?

The Explore Test for 8th Graders

The purpose of the Explore Test is to help 8th graders know:

  • their current level of proficiency in English, Math, Reading, and Science.
  • how to better plan for high school courses.
  • how to prepare for the ACT.
  • practice taking a standardized test (like the ACT or SAT).
  • or what career direction to choose.
