1. Analyze your own areas of strength by taking the VIA Survey of Character Strengths and use your three (3) signature strengths in new, unique ways (see Peterson pp. 158-162 for some ideas).
2. Identify your values by taking the Schwartz Value Inventory.
3. Reflect on your surveys’ results in light of what you learned from the textbook chapters 5,6,7& 8 (required!) and any two or more of the materials (i.e., articles, videos) assigned for this week. Make sure to include (1) main points of the chapter/articles/videos (please summarize in your own words and do not list!) and (2) your own reaction to the author’s ideas. Keep in mind that your personal reaction should be more than your mere opinion. You should be critically evaluating the ideas presented and integrating these ideas with evidence and information you learned from the assigned class materials.
