The three biggest challenges facing educators today are poor academic outcomes, staff burnout, and student discipline. Come hear firsthand from teachers, coaches, and students who are engaging in an experiential learning designed to impact all three areas. We believe that adventure is a powerful approach for healing for children and adults. Join us as we provide a brief overview of the MCISD’s newly launched Adventure Program! We will highlight the 7 Adventure beliefs, how our program supports the mental wellness of all, and how we intentionally design classroom goals and accompanying experiential activities to help foster a supportive and inclusive classroom environment. Presenters will also lead participants in multiple experiential adventure learning activities!
