Our success story is like a sports like fairy tale that had a happy ending. We began to introduce the students to something none of them have done--golf! Of course students were hesitant but by telling the kids to compare it to getting a new video game and they all said they would be happy to try it. Now I got them to see golf as a video game and by completing the levels (skills), they could beat the game. This eye opening discovery made them ready to try new things and we will continue to use real life experiences to keep kids motivated.
