                       If the pig is drawn:
              Toward the top of the paper, you tend to be a positive,
            optimistic person.
              Toward the middle of the paper, you tend to be a
            practical, realistic person.
              Toward the bottom of the paper, you may look at the
            pessimistic side too often.
              Facing left, you tend to believe in tradition, are friendly
            and remember dates, including birthdays.
              Facing right, you tend to be innovative, creative,
            energetic and active, but perhaps forgetful.
              Facing forward, looking at you, you tend to be direct,
            enjoy debating different ideas and viewpoints and are at
            ease with ideas and discussions.

              With few details, you may be ruled by emotion more

            opposed to planning.

               Creating Positive, Productive
                      Relationships
             Two central principles: “One, positive
              change cannot occur in isolation. In
              order for children to feel supported, the
              whole class, as well as the teacher, must
              be cheering for them, and believing
              transformations can occur. And two,
              classroom power has to be shared
              among its members. Children are more
              likely to work hard at learning if they’re
              included in the process of running the
              classroom and making decisions.”

             Being WISE about Goal Setting

             A goal doesn’t do the actual work for
              students ; it just helps them focus.
             Have students work in teams to
              brainstorm personal traits that help
              people reach their goals.
             Discuss ways of staying on track with
              goals.
             Students can create a master list and
              their own acronyms as a mnemonic
              device. One example is WISE:

              and not having opportunity knock…and that’s having
              opportunity knock and not being ready.
             Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision
              is a nightmare.
             If you wait to do everything until you’re sure you’re ready,
              you’ll probably never do much of anything!
