MASST-R Module 1: Self-Awareness
Self-awareness, as defined through the Social Emotional literature, is accurately assessing one's feelings, values, and strengths; and maintaining a well-grounded sense of self-confidence. MASST-R begins with the premise that internal control is necessary for responsible, productive behavior and problem solving. Essential to such internal control is a knowledge of self: who we are, what forces made us what we are, how we have made choices that resulted in who we have become, and how to modify those choices for positive change. Self-knowledge enables students to develop personal, internal strategies for problem solving and self-control. Through these internal strategies, students are able to self-direct their social behavior.
