Self-esteem is an individual’s unmitigated evaluation of their self-worth. From academicians to professional successors, it plays a critical role to embrace beliefs about one’s abilities. Also, it can highly dominate one’s range of preferences and decisions. Research study shows that people with high self-esteem are the individualists who are motivated to take heed about themselves to determinedly aspire to fulfil their goals and dreams. In contrast, people with low self-esteem don’t take into consideration as proficient to flourish their impetuses.
By building self-esteem among the learners can construct a positive difference by consolidating the individuality of every student in a classroom to facilitate the academic performances and to build healthy social skills. The educational institutions should implement positive interventions for the betterment in improving learning and development.
It is necessary to establish and teach the expectations of the institution by using formative feedback to build a self-concept. It is also essential to understand the child’s interpersonal skills and social skills along with inclusivity and social capacities by conducting ‘I AM’ activity. In a sheet of paper, a student can write many attributes and qualities about him/her or stick pictures or draw things they like. Through this, educators can evaluate the learners’ self-esteem and they can plan the teaching curriculum accordingly.
As a measure of restorative consequences, the educators conduct few activities. Following are the activities which can be conducted on offline mode.
- Flip: Students can make a list of mistakes, failures and obstacles that they came across during learning. After mentioning it, they are allowed to flip them and write a positive affirmation.
- Group interviews: Students and the educator can sit in a circle where they are intended to ask questions – what’s your favourite colour? What are your hobbies? This can help the students to overcome their social anxiety and self-doubt. Researchers believe this activity can help the majority of the students to form bonds with their peers.
Following are the activities which can be conducted on online mode:
- My positive trait: The students can draw or write as many as positive traits about them and can switch on their camera to show their creativity. With that note, they can explain why they fit for that trait. It will help students to identify their self-worth.
- Letter to yourself: By using a website futureme.org the students can write a letter to future self. The advantage of using this website is the letter gets delivered on the date set by the user. This can help the learners to see their growth in the course of time.
