 Help students identify what they can and already do to be successful in the classroom. Anger management issues can cause a lot of problems or disruptions in the classroom.
 1. Help students learn the importance of setting goals. 2. Practice outlining the steps in completing a short-term goal 3. Continue focusing on the importance of working together as a class. 4. Have students recognize the changes that occur in their body when they start to get angry. 5. Use their anger journals when they are angry instead of acting out in class.
 1. Students will learn to plan ahead in order to complete a short term goal. 2. Students will follow directions or steps that they have previously recorded. 3. Students will work together as a class. 4. Students will recognize their anger before acting inappropriately. 5. Students will remove themselves from a situation and take a break in an area where they can write in their journal
 Individual paper for each student with title, Recipe for Successful Students. Flour, salt, water, vegetable oil, Construction paper to form the cover of the journal, lined paper for filler pages of the journal.
 Student's self esteem can be enhanced by creating their own recipe cookbook page. At the end the class will come together and put all their recipes together to form a cookbook for success. Talk about how there are changes that occur in our bodies when we get angry such as squinting our eyes, clenching our fists, knots in our stomach and by recognizing these signs we can be better prepared to make good choices.
 Instruct students to create their own recipe detailing what ingredients they have that make them a successful student. Followed by steps for how other students can be successful students as well. Tell students one way to become more familiar with the changes that take place in our body is to keep a journal of times when we are angry and what we noticed. Once students recognize the signs they can learn to make good choices.
 Have students create their recipes. Have students create their anger journals and decorate the covers.
Checking For Understanding:
 Ask students to keep a log of what happened in various situations to make them angry and also include how they responded. Ask students to describe how they worked together as a team to form the cookbook.
 Having students share what they do to be successful is a great way to highlight each students unique qualities and is also a way to get everyone involved. Students should be advised that they can also incorporate drawings in their journals as drawing is one way to relieve anger along with writing.
