For teachers who want to participate in the Note Project by sharing a lesson on appreciation with their students, we offer a Lesson Plan on “The Importance of Appreciation” that can be completed in 30-60 minutes. The lesson plan includes discussion questions, activities, and inspiring quotations about appreciation and gratitude. The goal is to help students understand the “why, who and how” of appreciation, and for each student to complete the lesson with a note of appreciation that they can send to someone.
As an additional assignment (which could be for extra credit!), students can also participate in the Note Project. There is no cost to participate. The students simply pledge to send at least one note of appreciation to someone – a pledge they can fulfill by sending the note they write as part of this lesson.
