The MAPS curriculum is typically a three day program utilized by school districts as an intervention that provides students with greater reflection on their actions and the positive/negative consequences of those actions. Students are generally referred for fighting or altercations with other students on campus. The program outlines how communication, personal values, family dynamics and adolescent brain development affect the way students interact with their peers. The program activates important character qualities such as empathy, understanding, and forgiveness in peer relationships.
The REAL YOU curriculum focuses on academic integrity. The classroom-based instruction highlights the value of learning, and the effects of academic dishonesty. During the group, we discuss common factors contributing to academic cheating such as time management, peers, anxiety, family expectations, fear of failure, home environments, technology and learning styles are discussed.
The GPS curriculum focuses on positive and negative student interactions including bullying, peer pressure, and what mutually respectful relations could be like. GPS challenges students to examine their current thought and action patterns, and to use their future goals in order to make decisions in the present.
