Quiet Times will not only get students thinking about what is important to them but will also allow them a welcome chance to recharge and refresh in the midst of busy and often stressful day-to-day classroom learning.
– Providing Students with Opportunities to contemplate their Lives, their Thoughts, their Values and their Feelings
Quiet Times is a book designed to provide a safety valve for student stress. Recognising that students have increasing demands placed on them both at school and at home, the low-intensity activities within this book are aimed at providing a chance for students to take a break and simply contemplate their own thoughts and feelings.
Designed to be used in short 10–15-minute classroom breaks, the activities require no preparation and no additional equipment. The varied readings and exercises in the book engage students in areas like inspiration, motivation, goal setting, achievement, perception, values, and much more. A separate section is comprised of simple creative activities that any student can tackle.
