Self-Management Toolkit

By Staff from Transforming Education

“The self-management toolkit is a self-contained professional development session (a “PD-in-a-Box”) built to ensure that teachers have a positive experience while learning more about self-management.” - Transforming Education

What is Self-Management?

Self-management is a key enabler for all learning (for children and adults!) whether for academic subjects, other content areas, or skills like playing a musical instrument. Self-management allows students to follow through on plans to complete assignments, study for tests, and stay focused in class. In adults, it is critical to reaching goals related to learning or life, like developing a new professional skill or keeping to a diet. Learn more: hear from students, and find out what you can do.

  • Facilitators guide with sample agendas Slide presentation to guide you through the session
