Tips for Implementing WellCheq

Start your day or advisory with a check-in. This allows students to pause, reflect, and take inventory of how they are feeling before getting the day started.

Assign one student whose job it is to remind the other students to complete their check-in. This is fun for the student and sends the message that checking in is important.

Share the emotional bar graph with students. This allows students to see that they are not the only one who may be feeling something other than happy. Giving students insight into how the class is doing can also create a sense of community.

Ask the students how they want you to use the data. This sends the message that you are paying attention and that you value their input.
