Lesson Plan

Thank You for Believing in Me

The fourth and final activity in the Gratitude series has learners craft and deliver a Gratitude Letter to a significant person in their lives. Writers include information about how they benefitted from the attention of the benefactor, an acknowledgment of the cost to the benefactor, and recognition of the benefactor's intent. The unit ends with individuals writing a reflection on why they believe it is important to express gratitude in relationships.
