A school principal at Oak Grove-Bellemeade Elementary School in Richmond, Virginia, describes the application of the Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer assessment developed by the Gallup organization. A fifth-grade girl who was in frequent conflict with peers and teachers was helped to identify her strengths and develop more effective emotional and academic coping skills. This article describes how the Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer (Gallup, 2009) was used to support students. All fifth graders could join an after-school club and could take the Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer. The results were discussed with the students and their parents with the goal of helping develop individual learning plans for the future.
