Supercomputer Analysis: A Classroom Worksheet for Managing Emotions and Developing Healthy Responses



  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 1 PDF

The Supercomputer Analysis worksheet from Imaginhero™ is a tool to help students develop healthy methods of managing their emotions in problem situations.

By the end of the session a student will have:
Objectively reviewed their own emotional response to a situation.
Objectively assessed the impact of their actions.
Developed a plan to manage their emotions in future similar situations.

How it Works
By imagining themselves as a superhero and the situation that occurred from the perspective of a non-emotive computer that monitors them from their superhero base, the student is walked through the process of objectively reviewing their own emotions, their reaction, the impact on themselves and others, what they would like to have done differently, and how they plan to react to similar situations in the future.

When to Use
You’re working with a student who has acted in a way that’s caused distress to themselves or others. You want to help them assess their actions objectively, understand the impact they have had, and plan out a different way of responding to similar situations in the future.

What’s Included
The printable PDF contains a sample script for you to guide a student through the exercise. A set of cards can be used to verbally walk a student through the steps (ideal for younger students), as well as worksheets where a child can write responses from their ‘supercomputer’ as they analyse their emotional response and behavior.

The cards and worksheets can be combined so you first walk them through analysing their responses and how they plan to change them, then reinforce these steps by completing the worksheets.

Both cards and worksheets are intended for use once the child is no longer in a highly-emotive state and is able to confront their emotions without becoming overly upset.

The PDF includes both full color and ink-saver versions of the worksheets and cards.
