Activity Overview


Experiencing fear or anxiety when it comes to achieving a goal is natural. At times, we need to take a risk while weighing the daunting consequences of failure. Preparing yourself as much as possible is a good way to relieve stress when it comes to approaching tasks. Students may face anxiety when it comes to testing; a good way to reduce that stress is to study and review.

In this activity, have students create or recreate a long term or mid range goal then brainstorm an obstacle they may face in order to achieve that goal. An example could be getting a job. In order to get a job you need to go on an interview for it. This may be a high stress situation, especially for the inexperienced. Practicing interview questions with a more experienced person can reduce the stress and anxiety associated with an interview.

A great way to modify this activity would be adding a "think-pair-share" component. Have students fill in the first two cells (goal and obstacle), then switch stations or computers with their partner and have students offer advice to one another to achieve their goals. This will help with collaboration and critical thinking.
