The Bridge Program: Burlington High School
Our students completed their vision boards this week and categorized each goal as having "no control," "some control," and "all control." Goals such as buying a vacation home, having children, and traveling fell under the category as having "some control" for most of our students. Character traits and growth mindset terms fell under the category as having "all control" for the majority as well. These vision boards focused on compartmentalizing what we can control in the future.
Needs: things you have to have in order to live/survive. (For example: air, food, water, shelter, clothes, safety, love) Wants: things that you would like to have to make your life easier -- things you can live without. (For example: CDs, new clothes, TV set)
Values : guidelines on how you live; your beliefs about right and wrong; (For example: freedom, honesty, trust, health, friendship, fun, money, power, love)
Goals: Where you want to go – something you want in the future that will make you happy.
