The Project S.H.I.N.E. Family Album


Julie Marshall and Becky Strickland

Goal of S.H.I.N.E.

  • Every student would understand the significance of his/her role in his/her OWN educational success and within the community in which he/she lives.

The “S.H.I.N.E.” Approach

  • Two-member looping team

  • High expectations

  • Strong sense of family- United community of learners

  • Standards-based

  • Highly integrated content

  • Real-world application

  • Service learning

  • For two are better than one; you see if one should fall, the other is there to pick him up…

    paraphrased from The Holy Bible

“Let love be your greatest aim.”

I Corinthians 13:1


Checkerboard Puzzle

  • The task is to create a checkerboard from the puzzle pieces given.

  • Pass out the puzzle pieces until there are no pieces remaining. Each person should have at least one puzzle piece.

  • Taking turns, each person should place a single puzzle piece on the table if they feel it will get the puzzle completed WITHOUT TALKING. If a person does not feel a puzzle piece will fit into the puzzle at his/her turn, that person should be skipped.

  • First team to correctly complete the checkerboard wins!

Topics for discussion

  • Effective teams

  • Teamwork

  • Interdisciplinary planning

Group Sketch

  • Your group will draw a structure.

  • You may use no more than 25 lines.

  • Each person may only draw one line and then pass the pen.

  • The person who draws the very first line will be called the group leader.

  • Each group will have one extra “Special Rule” to follow. You be given this rule now.

Group Sketch Questions

  • Was your group successful?

  • How did you feel about your “Special Rule?”

  • How did you feel when you heard other groups doing different things?
