Foundations for Learning
Foundations for Learning is a fall/winter course developed to assist CVA 9th graders in taking ownership of not only their academic experience, but other key areas of their life as well, namely: team building, goal setting, time management, health & wellness, relationships, and budgeting. Hands-on activities, interactive educational videos, field trips, community speakers, and class discussions will be some of the tools used to involve students in the topics. Students will be asked to consider these Essential Questions throughout the course: What is success? Where does your time go? What is good health? What is a healthy relationship? How do you handle money? How do we decipher media messages?
