In Unit 3, students explore the concept of one’s best self and learn that they can practice being their best self even when they experience strong emotions. They discover that emotions often arise in response to experiences, and they explore their own and others’ emotional triggers. Students practice pausing to notice and respond to how they are feeling with care and compassion, and they develop Best Self Strategies to use in challenging situations.
