In this unit we had to connect our missions to the Kautilya plan. Kautilya left us with some questions before he died back in 300 B.C. Why? How? How much/many? When/where? What if? We ask ourselves these particular questions everyday whether we notice or not. As a class, we created individual missions, incorporating these questions.
For my lesson, I wanted to show the class how to help treat depression. Depression is something I have been dealing with for a long time, and its my goal to help teens overcome such a dark obstacle. I showed my classmates a simple but effective that help a day to day depressed person. I handed out a sheet of paper and a pencil and had them write one negative event that had happened to them in their lives, and one positive event that has also occurred. I then had them fold it so the positive was facing them and the negative was folded on the inside. The point of this exercise was to show that the negative will always be there, but you can linger on the positive to make the negative easier to deal with. The strategy of physically writing down your problem, has helped me enormously in my life and I wanted to share it with as many people as I could.
