Camp Propel Curriculum
Students attending Camp Propel will experience daily instruction in reading, writing, mathematics, and science.
Follow the curriculum you were given.
There is a Moodle site with the curriculum. You can access this from REACH.
Responsive Classroom/Discipline
We will teach students the skills they need for academic and social success: cooperation, assertion, responsibility,
empathy, and self-control (CARES). Consistent, school-wide language related to CARES will be posted in all
instructional areas and referred to throughout the school day.
Cooperation-listen, follow directions, and participate
Assertion-do your best and ask for help when you need it
Responsibility-be prepared, complete quality work, and respect property
Empathy-be kind and respect others
Self Control-be in charge of your words and actions
Morning Meeting: This is built into the schedule. There should be 4 parts:

-Greeting: Everyone gets greeted and gives a greeting in some fashion


-Sharing: Students share on a topic
-Activity: Quick, but fun.
-Message: Should be written out before students arrive. Should be interactive.
Altogether, Morning Meeting should be about 15 minutes.
Discipline = Logical Consequences. You break it, you fix it.
Take a Break. Be consistent. Make sure to conference with the student and explain expectations before they rejoin
the class. The Take a Break spot should allow the student to see and hear all instruction.
Then try a buddy class. Send them to another class of the same grade to Take a Break. Reflection sheets are a nice
addition to buddy room Take a Break.
The last option is to send them to the office. Depending on the situation, they may be sent home for the day. If we
are providing engaging instruction, and are consistent with high expectations, this shouldnt have to happen.
