Culture Matters

Posted by PAUL HNIZDIL on 5/23/2022

After the 8th grade experience with the WPG, one thing became very clear: Culture Matters. 


For secondary students, it is important that they come from a classroom environment where public communication, critical thinking and academic risk-taking are the norm.  Such an environment gives students a little bit of experience before taking on the WPG.  Otherwise, the WPG is too overwhelming and not enough students will make it through the phases of the WPG.  


Lesson for the facilitators: If you build it, they will thrive.
