This all-grade affective program is about people learnig to work together in a variety of
structured settings. It is a reality-based multi-stage curriculum made up of sequential
group exercises that address issues like leadership, communication, planning, problem-
solving, collaboration, productivity, conflict resolution and trust.
Challenge Ed is a continuous classroom process that is augmented through experiences
on team building courses throughout the district. Students learn how their comments
and actions affect everyday life. The focus is on the group process and solutions while
using the activity to generate awareness and class discussion. The whole child, affective
and academic, is our concern. This resource is a strong social skills building tool available
to students of the Portage School System.
