$250.00$750.00

Innovative solutions rarely result from an initial idea. When trying to develop innovative ideas, it’s essential to find ways to push our thinking in order to progress beyond familiar solutions to a level that is truly original. In this module, participants will be introduced to the SCAMPER process. This tool features strategies for thinking outside the box and fostering creative problem solving.

The ESSENTIALS

No matter what you call them — character skills, SEL skills, positive psychology strengths, employability skills, 21st-century competencies, or even soft skills— these foundational skills are essential in every family, school, extra-curricular, sport, employment/STEM readiness program, community, or workplace.

The ESSENTIALS is a research-based character development and leadership enhancement program designed for educators working with middle and high school-aged youth. The twelve focus areas in The ESSENTIALS series represent critical competencies for developing character and culture skills needed for success in school, extra-curricular activities, work, and beyond.

The ESSENTIALS modules draw upon nearly 25 years of applied research and development in K-16 education, workplaces, and sports.

Educators can introduce each ESSENTIALS module as a single experience or break it into several 15-minute lessons. Students can use the module’s core tool or strategies repeatedly to master the competency over time. In addition, each module includes several extension activities and teaching ideas, allowing for extra practice throughout a course, semester, or year.
