Knowing what you value is important in how a person feels about themselves. The challenge in this then becomes how you are able to reach the potential that you believe about yourself. This assessment can be done as a group activity or with individual students.
This assessment will help your student take steps toward what they believe they have within themselves. You may have some students that are reluctant to give much effort when asked the question, what do you value? In situations like that I would usually start asking them questions and then suggest different values that associate with their answers given.
Guided questions: Who is most important to you? Why? Do you consider yourself similar to this person? Tell me about a time that you felt accomplished. What was the situation? If you could change one thing in this world to make it better what would you change? Why? Who is your favorite celebrity, teacher? What is one thing you wish you could do?
