Tips and Tools for Teaching and Student Success with Clifton Strengths.

This is a series designed to help instructors and departments on campus incorporate a Clifton Strengths activity in 60 seconds or 60 minutes.  Each strategy provides an opportunity for you and your students or team members to use strengths every day and to create “Moments That Matter” around strengths in the classroom. These strengths teaching and learning strategies are organized as opportunities for engagement, creative applications, assessments, and recognition. Have fun.

Creative Strengths

Take tinker toys, pins, straws, marshmallows, and toothpicks to class. Ask students to create a tower, bridge, or “masterpiece” using the objects.  After the creative exercise, discuss the processes that went on during the experience. Tie the process to students’ strengths.
