Due to the fact that many students may be learning remotely whether from home or in a pod created by groups of parents, this curriculum will be available for the remainder of 2020 for only $47.00 (Previously $497 for a school). Although created for groups of students gathered together, the unique lessons are ideal for the current climate in our country and can be taught by parents as well as educators. (Pricing extended through the rest of the 2020/2021 school year)
Strategies for Success is a 90 day program originally designed for a public high school in Rhode island to empower teens and provide them with the academic, leadership, and social skills needed to be successful during their teen years and beyond. Inspired by the tragic suicide of a student who had been bullied, this program gives teens a daily dose of the positive strategies of the most successful people in the world. It builds a team of students – grades 9 to 12, all levels of ability – who most likely would have never crossed paths, who in fact might otherwise have been adversaries.
These factors combined with the enormous popularity of the class (85% of the student body enrolled at some point in their high school career) created a positive shift in the student body and the entire school. Many have attributed a rise in graduation rate, attendance rates and state test scores to the implementation of this program. They also noted a drop in discipline problems including bullying as the program grew.
The program contains 56 lessons taught in a positive, supportive manner creating a safe environment in which students thrive. Lessons cover a wide variety of topics including team building, leadership, ethics, learning strategies, power of words, goal setting, the power of giving back and much more. Very detailed directions are provided for the instructor so that they might achieve the same results as those who came before them.
Homework is minimal as the most important factor is what happens in class during the lectures, interactive team building activities and projects. There is a daily sheet for students with a quote of the day. It’s available on a web site so that students might have access from any device they have available. Teachers/schools who purchase this program may email the creator of the program (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the link to student journal pages on a dedicated website.
This program has been recognized both locally and nationally for the extremely positive results the teens who have taken it have achieved. They range from Teacher of the Year for the school and district to recognition as a “Hero” for the Oprah Winfrey Show to the Jefferson Award for Public Service to National Finalist - Cable in the Classroom Leaders in Learning.
