PURPOSE

ISELF is a class that is designed to help students to build knowledge and skills of strategies that help to improve their academic success as well as their mental and emotional wellbeing.

Based on the science of Positive Psychology, ISELF uses theories developed by Martin Seligman, Carol Dweck, Mihalyi Csikszentmihalyi and many others in the forefront of research.

The theories that underpin the explicit teaching of ISELF at Epping Secondary College include the following:

WHAT IS TAUGHT IN ISELF?
HOW DO WE TEACH ISELF?
In order for ISELF to be both accessible and purposeful for all students we ask that ISELF is taught as practicably as possible.  Students know the theory that underpins positive psychology to give practical tasks and CATs a focus and purpose.
