Classes I Teach
By the end of the semester, 100% of the students will learn skills, strategies, and information through experience and participation in adventure activities so that they can identify an adventure activity that they would do outside of a school setting to maintain or enhance a high level of wellness throughout their entire lifespan. This will be measured by unit self reflections and an end of the semester reflection.
