How can we combat the 1 to 5 ratio of a young person not being able to express a clear vision of where they want to go? Help students find purpose. That is where the urban youth motivation curriculum RESH 180 has been designed to set-in-motion the notion of purpose thinking. RESH is an acronym for “Raising Expectations, Standards, and Honor.” 180 refers to young people making a 180 degree turn in their lives. RESH 180 explores a young person’s attitudes, mindset, and beliefs – using visual, auditory, and sensory stimuli that embrace the way young people learn today. By challenging their mind-set, RESH 180 initiates a self-directed inward examination that each young person uses to become aware of his or her direction in life, and progress toward purpose in life. RESH 180 teaches students to examine themselves inwardly, to see whether or not they have moved or grown in a direction that will lead to a purposeful, meaningful life. With this newfound awareness, the young people are then taught to examine the inputs, influences and effects that have brought them to the life situations they are in today. Next, they are taught a new way to interpret the factors that influence their lives. The analogy of a “lens” is used to demonstrate how to “make their eyes work.” Finally, RESH 180 teaches young people to be accountable for their actions, and also gives them life skills to practice what they have learned. Every page of the RESH 180 curriculum has been designed to collect data and offer genuine and meaningful perspective of meeting student needs and being relevant to their current status. Purpose needs to be taught to every young person in our schools. Once purpose is activated the student will "see" reading, math, and writing are subjects beyond the classroom.
The creator of RESH 180 Dr Adam Ybarra has created a Turn-Key program that includes an Instructor's DVD that contains 7-teaching videos, podcast, and animation and a Instructor's Manual offering step-by-step instructions, checklists and teaching aids. There is also a full color publication student workbook.
