Strategy Three

Use BARR’s I-Time Curriculum to foster a climate for learning

The BARR model’s I-Time is a 30-minute weekly lesson that students take with others in their cohort as a supplement to the school curriculum.

Facilitated by the cohort’s core-subject teachers, I-Time’s social/emotional focus helps students build strong relationships with teachers and each other — and practice essential life skills, such as communicating effectively and setting personal goals.

I-Time also addresses important issues for adolescents, including grief and loss, and substance use.
