The “Thought Catchers”


♦♦ How to Download the Worksheets ♦♦

You can easily download (a) all the worksheets; (b) any of the four folders; or (c) a single worksheet to a file you create on your computer, pad, etc.

Google Drive.  If you like, you can then upload the worksheets to your Google Drive (you can’t download them directly to Google Drive because of ownership issues).


Simple 3 Step Process for Downloading Any or All Worksheets

#1  Open the worksheet file here – Worksheets

This will take you to my Google Drive, where the blank worksheets are housed.  You can download them to your device, where they will then be your worksheets and you can use them as you like.  You can also upload them to your Google Docs from your device.

#2  Click on the appropriate drop-down menu and then click on Download in that menu.  That creates a single document or a zipfile (if you downloaded more than one worksheet).

#3  Find the single worksheet or zipfile (may be in your downloads folder) and save it to a file you create.


(a) Downloading All the Worksheets

Click Worksheets in the header and then click on Downloads.  


(b) Downloading any Folder

For example – Click on C. What to D0 – Managing the Journey and then click on Downloads in the drop-down.  (Don’t highlight any of the individual worksheets or you will not get the whole folder)


(c) Downloading a Single Worksheet – 2 Ways

Downloading from here:  For example – Click on C. What to D0Managing the Journey and highlight any single worksheet you want to download and click on Download in the drop-down.

Downloading from Other Parts of the Site:  You can link to a single worksheet from other parts of the site by clicking on the orange View Worksheet button.  When that worksheet comes up, just click on the File dropdown menu and click Download.


Uploading to Google Drive


The worksheets are not designed to be “finished” in one sitting.  They are designed so that you can capture and save your thoughts as you have them.  That way you can follow your interest and make notes as you go – and always be able to come back to your saved thoughts.  No one will have access to your work unless you give them access.

There are worksheets for each of the four main sections – and you can make up your own.

  1. The 3 Core Challenges – Identity, Relationships and  Competencies
  2. What to Expect on Your Journey
  3. What to Do About it – Managing Your Journey
  4. “Specials” – some of the topics have worksheets

Animations.  A lot of the “thought catchers” have 3-5 minute animations that show examples of teenagers capturing thoughts on specific topics.  Those are embedded in the text by the worksheets.
