Spirit of Team

What is Spirit of Team?

A teamwork and self-worth focused curriculum for middle school students composed of lessons from the team building curriculum GUTS, lessons adapted by Dana Christenson, and discussions focused on the Stevens Middle School’s positive behavior incentive system “PRIDE.” Based on and inspired by the TEAM program developed by Dennis Watson and Michell Gentry and the GUTS program founded by Glenn Goldberg.

This curriculum is laid out in seven modules that can be run as days, weeks or months. For Spring 2018, Trudy Robbins will lead an introductory activity with each 8th grade science class, reaching all the 8th grade students, to be followed by an all 8th grade assembly to kick off the program. The seven modules will then conclude at Spring Break and students will run the modules again with their peers after Spring Break. Flow of curriculum was developed by Dana Christenson and Michell Gentry.
