English Teaching and the Science of Happiness

English Teaching and the Science of Happiness is a resource of activities for language teachers who wish to bring some of what we know about positive psychology into their classrooms. The premise of the resource is a simple one—that happy, engaged learners having positive classroom experiences are more effective language learners. And while the focus of the activities in English Teaching and the Science of Happiness is primarily on helping students have positive feelings towards the learning of English and in giving them practice in different aspects of the language, a parallel aim is to help students gain the happiness management skills that may help them lead happier, more engaged lives outside of the classroom. lt has been estimated that 40% of our positive feelings are based on things that we choose to do, that this is something we have some control over. With a change in our habits and in what we look at, we can all potentially be happier.
