Adventure Learning

TeacherMs. Spieles  

Class Goal: Students will experience teamwork, life skills and appropriate conflict resolution strategies through adventure challenge activities. Students will learn ways to be an effective, healthy person. 

Grading: 60% appropriate participation and preparation (effort, attitude, behavior and being prepared) 

40% class assignments, projects and homework 

Homework: I give 2 – 3 days to complete an assignment. Sometimes the work requires a parent signature for full credit. 

Course Requirements: Students do not need a special folder or notebook for this class; However, they must have a pencil each day. Failure to do so will lower their grade. Having a pencil is part of being prepared.
