Happy New Year! We hope your 2020 is off to a good start. As we head into the second half of the school year, we’re happy to introduce a new series of articles in the Monday Message, aimed at unpacking some of the essentials of the Empower Generations educational model.
Our educational model is driven by much more than simply making sure children are good students. Rather, it’s focused on equipping them to be lifelong learners who are fully developed and prepared to lead in the 21st century.
Whether you’ve been part of the Empower Generations family for a while or are fairly new, you’ve most likely heard a lot of talk about “The 7 Habits” and how important they are to what we do. Stephen Covey’s best-selling The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has been deeply influential in the shaping of the Empower Generations approach to project-based learning, as well as our staff development. We are constantly inspired by how we see our learners put the 7 Habits into action.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll expand on each of the habits, how they relate to learning at Empower Generations, and even practical ways you can incorporate them into your daily life.
To get things started, though, we wanted to take today to introduce the 7 Habits.
Coming up next week, we’ll dive into the first habit, Be Proactive, discussing what it looks like in practical terms and how you can make it part of your life.
