How can I improve?

Last week I went through both of the social capabilities in one lesson. When I did the personal capabilities I had to use a lesson for each and the first personal awareness was quite hard to unpack with year 8s. The social capabilities were far easier to manage in a year 8 class and the students cottoned on quickly and so we could do both. it is probably because we did take our time to unpack the personal capabilities really well and also the fact the year 8s would have had other social messages by now from families and school. I have just gathered the feedback for social awareness and am really pleased with their messages of how they can get better at this. They could not have come up with a better list!
