Using Experiential Learning Cycle, Team Development, Creative Problem Solving, Conflict Resolution and various other models. The students will be engaged in a fully learner centered program. All programs will be interactive and the students will be moving and engaged the majority of the time.
Additionally we will work with the students to establish behavior guidelines within the programs, and facilitate the students to transfer skills gained into the classroom and home lives.
We will develop, administer and report student self evaluations. We will report the data to administrative staff periodically at a time TBD.
