Approach: Week Five Recap

8th Grade

-What teamwork looks like-

Last week groups engaged in a fun initiative, Spider Web. In order to complete the activity each member has to pass from one side to the other. The catch…you can’t touch the web, and can only go through a section once. Groups were successful by focusing on these 4 components:

  1. Problem Solving

  2. Communication

  3. Feedback

  4. Leadership

9th Grade

Communication, Communication, Communication!

It is the essence of all our relationships, and imperative to the health of groups. Members learned the four styles of communication; passive, passive-aggressive, aggressive, and assertive and identified which style they tend to gravitate towards. Through role-playing and initiatives, members were able to analyze the effectiveness of each style and create goals for how they’d like to shift. There is no “good” or “bad” communication, rather choices in how we communicate with one another.


Looking forward to shredding on sunday! In the meantime, wishing everyone a great weekend!
