An Interactive Student Resource
(Current resources recommended for grades 3rd-6th. Full K-12 resource and digital platform coming soon)
The Discovery Series from Rewriting Futures walks children through three strategically identified sections designed to shed light on life at home, help identify difficulties and how to overcome them, and open the door to goal-setting and dreaming:
My Home • Overcoming • Dreaming
Each section has a writing component (Workbook), and a sharing component in a small group (Discovery Group) in the classroom or club. Discovery Guides (small group leaders) lead the small group discussions with students.
Rewrite the future.
We have six desired outcomes with the Discovery series.
Stats & Research
Children are facing incredible challenges today. From social media to social anxiety, bullying and violence, increased substance abuse, depression and suicide. Dr. Robert Block, the former President of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said, “Adverse childhood experiences are the single greatest unaddressed public health threat facing our nation today.” The ACES Study conducted by the Center for Disease Control and the Kaiser Foundation identified the direct physical illness outcomes resulting from these childhood experiences. The bad outcomes often result when adverse childhood experiences are not addressed in a timely manner. In a sense they remain “undiscovered.”
Our team is now developing a new digital app platform that will work alongside the Discovery Series allowing students to self-assess while providing tools inside and outside the classroom digitally. Teachers and administrators will be able to see real-time metrics regarding each students’ social and emotional self-assessment.
This new platform will allow teachers to see classroom data of students while allowing administrators to see school-wide or district-wide data from student profiles.
