The activity required students to prepare 5 statements each related to self-esteem in four areas i.e. general self, social self/peers, home/parents and school. So, the total number of statements to be prepared was 20. The statements were formed in a way that the respondent has to pick from two options (Like Me/Unlike Me) i.e. how he/she usually feel and to put a tick (ü) in the column. If the statement does not describe how he/she usually feel, the respondent has to put a tick (ü) in the column ‘Unlike Me’. There was no right or wrong answers.

After brainstorming various statements for different areas of self-esteem, students came up with variety of statements such as “I am confident”, “I am a moral person” and so on. Statements prepared by the students were then modified and appropriate statements for all the areas of self-esteem were developed.
