Project Adventure, Inc. - Adventure in the Classroom
Project Adventure’s Adventure in the Classroom workshop will bring adventure learning to any classroom setting while also supporting positive school climate. AITC aligns with the International Baccalaureate (IB). The fit is especially strong with the middle years program (MYP) where their Approaches to Learning stress social emotional development. PA’s adventure facilitation techniques and activities help students to become more deeply engaged and connected with peers all while integrating content. Workshop participants electing an IB thread will be directed to IB aligned breakout groups, reading supplements and follow-up consultation. Participants will: Experience a variety of adventure-based lessons and activities that reinforce content and enhance learning; Explore how the AITC model advances cognitive as well as social and emotional skills; Learn the Experiential Learning Cycle to promote reflective practices, self and social-awareness, and deepen learning to support the learning needs of individual learners, as well as the group; Review strategies for adapting existing lessons to the AITC model; Develop a plan for applying the model and methods to participants’ school settings. Explore group facilitation skills to help establish a highly effective community; Reflect on the impact of adventure and experiential learning while experiencing engagement, challenge, and fun.
