The Rise & Shine Future Skills Challenge
Using a challenge experience to learn skills
I dedicate the Rise & Shine initiative to all Junior school teacher's everywhere
They do a challenging job. I offer this idea to make their own by using a debating challenge to inspire and bring out the best in ALL their students.
Even a classroom challenge for 1 term can really stimulate fresh energy. I’ve watched this happen again and again for 14 years.
