MUSORY

Teachers and students come together as a class to build community and focus on self-efficacy, self-reflection and communication. This daily practice allows time for students to set and reflect on personal goals. Topics such as community issues and social justice are explored. MUSORY topics are guided by the self-efficacy and communication standards in the grade 7 curriculum guide and are developmentally and age appropriate.
