Due to a change in teacher requirements I will not be teaching at Columbia University’s Splash program this year
Genevieve Griffin, Founder and President of Small Steps Go Places Inc., will be attending the first ever joint New England Association for College Admission Counseling (NEACAC) and New York State Association for College Admission Counseling (NYSACAC) Super Conference.
Genevieve returned for her third Transition workshop for 91 college-bound seniors.
This year, she had enough copies of OPTION PLAY edition 2 to both set up games for groups of seniors, and then to leave for additional educational use by the College Counseling Office at CSS
THANKS TO THE PURCHASE OF 8 SETs BY THE CSS PTA!
After playing well-discussed rounds of OPTION PLAY, Genevieve used her GETTING READY FOR COLLEGE activity, How to Be a Good Roommate, along with role playing to illustrate how scenarios from OPTION PLAY can be combined with activities from the Series to help college-bound seniors strategize about future situations.
The ultimate goal of Columbia Splash is to foster excitement for teaching and learning. Students will be able to learn about topics that aren’t normally taught in a high school setting, which may even lead to discoveries of a new passion.
I will be teaching If You Build It Will They Play, a game design competition, and playing OPTION PLAY.
Genevieve is excited to share OPTION PLAY at the Guidance Expo (www.guidanceexpo.net). She will be at her table in the Westchester County Center's Main Hall beginning at 8:30am.
Genevieve will be playing OPTION PLAY with teens at the White Plains Library during Tabletop Tuesday. This will be a fun, great way to see how OPTION PLAY works. Teens, especially high school seniors should come. School counselors can observe, or if there are enough in attendance can have a game themselves.
