One of my focus in the course objective is to create academically successful learning groups. Since these will be incoming freshmen, college students, most of them will not know each other. However, what all of the students in this course do have in common is that they are all active participants of the same program. Thus, I would like for the students to get to know each other to build relationships and hopefully study groups in their classes during their time at this college.
These students will be introduced to True Colors as a means for them to better understand themselves and others. I will also have another Working Style personality assessment activity as well. In any case, True Color is an inventory used to appreciate strengths in our primary and secondary colors and appreciate differences with others who don’t identify with the same color as ourselves. It is important to better understand our preferred styles when working with others, and helpful in improving effectiveness in working with others with our least preferred (relatable) style.
Below is a two part assignment that I have created for students to learn more about their working personality styles. I am attaching the True Color Google Doc link for viewing here since the image below doesn’t allow you to access it. The second image is another means for students to become familiar with using Canvas, and also another activity for students to get to know each other since we will be working and collaborating with each other for the quarter.
