Target New Transitions


TNT Takes on LUREC!

TNT Takes on LUREC!

Academic Coaches are getting geared up to traverse the high-ropes course!

TNT’s 2017 LUREC experience focused on team building and positivity. Academic Coaches and Site Coordinators worked together to tackle a high ropes course and multiple low ropes challenges. It was a wonderful visualization of our work, as we lean on each other and are strongest together.

Coaches also participated in Professional Development workshops. They previewed upcoming Transition Activities, particularly how to best use Asset-Based Thinking when helping high school freshmen navigate high school skills like calculating grades. Coaches also practiced using TNT curriculum resources and responding to Saturday morning scenarios. The scenarios gave Coaches practice in quick thinking and allowed them to share strategies for addressing student behavior and using TNT resources in creative, effective ways.

As always, our thanks to LUREC for facilitating all of our awesome team building activities and for sharing their beautiful space with the TNT team. A big shout out to all of wonderful Coaches whose enthusiasm and support made the weekend such a success!
