Who are YOU? Intermediate Class-Part TWO
This class will be a continuation of “Who Are You? Part One” from the winter session. It would be to your advantage to have taken Part One. We will dive more deeply into the “composite” you, how you “act”, and the “real” you. We will delve more deeply into current research having to do with the impacts of environment, experience on who you are. This will include an in-depth personality study and stress—how you are affected and how you can better cope. The purpose is to strengthen relationships in all facets of life.$50.00

Who are YOU?
“What do you know about yourself? Why do you have the interests, habits, skills, talents, and abilities you do? How can you best use those traits to improve your own life but to also affect your relationships with others? We will learn the strengths and weaknesses of our personality types and how to best “bring out the types needed” in various situations. We will look at research that has to do with learning style (brain research), “birth order” influence, generational “inheritances”, and strengthening relationships in general. During our seven weeks, we will work through:
–Two (or three) different “personality inventories” – and what they reveal about your own personality.
–How knowing the personality types can help you to “play well with others” and strengthen your relationships.
–Discover what you love about your own personality, what drives you crazy, and how to deal with that.
–What is your learning style? (Will do one short inventory.) How does this knowledge help you decide what ELM classes to take, for example.
–What is the current research related to the brain and learning/teaching?
–How does “birth order” play into family relationships?
–Did you “inherit” any abilities, talents, or traits of your parents?
–How do we become who we truly are—taking on “influences” of others as we age and, how to we affect others to become who they are?$50.00

Examining Our Funny Bone-Storytelling
Join us as we examine the art of storytelling and classic and contemporary stories told by vintage and international storytellers (and also by classmates who want to tell their stories). Together we will “tell the tale” and “spin the yarns” of yesterday and today including nursery rhymes, fables, legends, limericks, shaggy dog stories, movies and music that meant so much to us. Since seniors are societies consummate storytellers, we will also learn how to create humorous stories and family trees about our selves and family members to pass on our “living legacy.” Welcome!$50.00
