Life Issues is about honing life skills and knowing more about who we are and how we are able to make an impact on others and the world in which we live. We start with some important skills you need in high school: study skills, time management, and learning about how all of us learn best. We identify and evaluate your particular learning preferences and needs. We identify and evaluate your character strengths and how to use them wisely. We explore the dimensions of your personality and preferred way of interaction with information and other people. We talk about faith, friends, parents, peers, relationships, and strategies to be well, healthy, and joyful.
