I think having students write thank you notes to project contributors is a good way to teach students about gratitude, plus, it builds community support and willingness to participate in future projects!

When teachers express gratitude in the classroom, students see and experience a very real model.

“We think that in helping young people become more grateful, they will feel happier and more satisfied with their lives. In addition, it may make them less likely to lash out at others when they lose a game or feel hurt in some way.”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 14, 2013 9:38 PM

Being a good example of gratitude is so important.
