CIS Guidance Curriculum

           We are so proud to see our CIS students grow as leaders! This year, our campus made a commitment to integrate Steven R. Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People into our campus mission, and the guidance curriculum has used these seven habits as a framework for delivery. Each month, our campus will focus on one of the Seven Habits; teachers will lead discussion and activities in their classrooms, and I will visit classes to support learning with developmental guidance lessons. The first three of the Seven Habits Be Proactive, Begin with the End in Mind, and Put First Things First--begin at individual level, and combine to help students become more independent. Habits 4 through 6 – Think Win-Win, Seek Fist to Understand, then to be Understood, and Synergize—lead students to become more interdependent and work well with others. Finally, Habit 7—Sharpen the Saw, incorporates all the other habits and focuses on the principle of renewal, self-care, and
meaningfulness.
           Within the Seven Habits framework, many necessary skills such as planning, goal-setting, initiative, organization and time and conflict management, communication, decision making, problem-solving, and technical/analytical skills are supported. Also, essential character traits are supported, including honesty, fairness, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, caring and citizenship. By implementing the Seven Habits into our curriculum and practices, we hope to help equip our students with the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.
