UBU Project Pedagogy
Our pedagogy comes from "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran:
"The greatest teachers lead their students to the threshold of their own wisdom."
The UBU Project also takes great inspiration and wisdom from these words:
"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree it will live its life believing it is stupid."
The UBU Project is dedicated to leading students along an interactive journey of self-discovery.
This is achieved through a process based upon the principles of Socratic Seminar which are:
UBU Project Curriculum
The UBU Project's social/emotional learning curriculum is based upon what we call The UBU Treasure Chest as taught through one-week, arts integration residencies:
Hope | Resilience | Self-Compassion | Empathy
Esperanza | Resistencia | Auto-Compasion | Empatia
Students of all ages quickly discover that their UBU Treasure Chest can be found in their own heart.
