Ms. Barrow who frequently supports students in the Transition Room was the recipient of a 2017-18 Innovative Grant. Students will engage in meaningful small group and personal activities that focus on individual strengths and past experiences to increase motivation shifting their fixed mindsets to growth mindsets. Three key activities encompass this project. First, students and staff will travel to the XSCAPE ROOM in Hudson and as a team attempt to break the room in one hour or less. Second, students will engage in exploring resources that focus on positive motivational quotes and mindset thoughts to help them reflect on their past and current experiences and create their motivational posters. Thirdly, students will work together to develop a list of community groups they would like to invite to their classroom for brunch.
