A Hero’s Journey: Returning Home-Interview With Bryan Marks Of Coral Reef Academy-Samoa

A Hero’s Journey: Returning Home-Interview With Bryan Marks Of Coral Reef Academy-Samoa | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

The challenge of having an ex-student join the staff of a school, whether it is a good thing or a bad thing and as an example of Joseph Campbell's Hero Journey is discussed by Bryan Marks, COO of Coral Reef Academy in Samoa to Lon May 19, 2016. Bryan had graduated from Coral Reef Academy 19 years ago which profoundly changed his life in a positive direction. Rejoining the school as a staff member is in a sense returning home, and that can give him great insight in working with the students. At the same time, the boundaries can get blurred. Bryan's discussion of his experience with Joseph Campbell's ?Hero's Journey? can help determine in advance if the fit is right for ?returning home.?

Why Are They Disengaged?  My Students Told Me Why | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
I used to think that when students were disengaged it was their own fault, and while sometimes that is still true, I have found in my years of teaching that a lot of the fault lies with me as the teacher.  Yet, realizing that I may be the cause of my students disengagement is hard to…

Research shows that programs that successfully support older youth intentionally create opportunities for youth voice, engagement and leadership at multiple levels.

Good question.  I think games can work really well if the educational games are first a challenging game, and second consistent with learning important concepts.
