RADeducators + RADstudents
The RADschool program is focused on cultivating a sustainable practice of mindfulness, positivity, responsibility, passion, healthy relationships and presence for students to take with them throughout their dynamic lives both in and out of school. It is necessary to reevaluate our approach to health and wellness in school because the pressures on our young people is more intense than ever, and we as a society are seeing the effects of this play out in the form of mental health issues rising in our young population. It is the aim of this program to radically change how we approach mental health in our classrooms and hopefully reduce the number of mental health crises, behaviour problems and focus issues through simple mindful movement practices.
The RADschool program uses an inquiry-based approach to learning and as outlined in the Alberta Ministerial Order from 2013, this approach is necessary to build engaged, ethical citizenship and entrepreneurial spirit in our students. The program is designed with holistic student-centered health in mind and using a question-based approach, will promote curiosity and deep personal engagement.
The RADschool consists of two parts: RADeducators and RADstudents. By becoming a RADeducator, you will be able to facilitate the RADschool program for your class, division, team, club, school or district. It will give you the tools to form RADstudents and develop a caring and compassionate school or team culture.
What YOU get:
This training program will consist of 3 days of intensive mindfulness programming as well as basic yoga instruction that will allow teachers to take back the RADschool ideas and implement them right away in their own classroom, team, club or school. This program also connects directly to many outcomes both from the Health and Life Skills Program of Studies and Physical Education Program of Studies. These connections will allow ease of integration into teaching and learning. The program will provide mentorship, ongoing support and materials needed to deliver a radiant, authentic, and dynamic approach to student wellness that will radically impact our students and our world. This program is HEART work that will change our world.
Teachers will also receive a manual that is specific for their division with lessons directly connected to the curriculum they teach, online support and option for continuous monthly newsletters and webinars.
