GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Feb 17, 2014—Students in River
City Scholars Charter Academy’s new Odyssey of the Mind club are preparing for
their first regional competition on Saturday, Feb. 22. Odyssey of the Mind is an international
educational program that encourages creative problem-solving.
The school’s two
Odyssey teams, consisting of fourth and fifth graders, have been practicing for
the competition since late November. This is a new program for the school, which
is in its second year of operation.
“I wanted to start
Odyssey of the Mind because I love that it incorporated higher order thinking,”
said the club’s coach and first-grade teacher Ahnna Sisco. “It gives the
students a chance to use the skills that we are teaching in school and apply
these strategies to real life situations.” Read the full article here: http://on.wzzm.com/1kWUJVY
