By the end of this unit students should be able to effectively work with any number of people as members of a team. Students will be able to recognize the consequences of their own actions and how those affect a larger group. Additionally, students will be able to develop the skills need to navigate conflict that arises in group settings. Along with that, students will develop their critical thinking skills to effective engage in problem solving. All of this is leading up to students being able to, as a group, identify an issue in their community and work towards addressing that issue together. This unit is based on the experiential education model. It is designed to get students active and learn through doing. This unit is designed to be used in an advisory type class and can be implemented over a series of weeks and doesn't need to happen in a quick succession of days.
