Should we engage others in the school community (e.g. student wellbeing coordinator, youth resource team, pre-service teachers, peer support leaders, junior/senior sub school leaders) to support delivery?
If several teachers in a single school are planning to deliver SenseAbility, try to make time to discuss the approach as a teaching group, with a more experienced teacher offering guidance on effective delivery.
Some important questions to consider when undertaking specific planning include:
- Which modules should be covered and when?
- Which curriculum area should the program fall under?
- Who will lead the delivery and implementation?
You may consider presenting background information on the program and sharing resources with your staff so they can gain an understanding of the importance of teaching Life Senses and Essential Skills for building resilience in young people. You also may consider sending a letter to parents informing them of the program and encouraging them to discuss it with their children.
