Xello Entry Point
In Xello, students can use the interest inventory and Storyboard to record the activities that are important to them. These sections can be used to jumpstart a discussion about how students can keep all of their different interests and responsibility in balance.
What roles do you play in life, and how can you balance them?
In this fun experiment, students try to balance some coins off of the side of a desk.
In this activity, students list off all the responsibilities and activities they perform in a day, and create a pie chart from the results.
Students get creative in this activity, writing a story about how they might balance several roles in a day before things get a bit weird.
