The Project

What Characterizes a High-Quality Activity?

We use four primary criteria to evaluate whether or not a particular activity is "high quality." High-quality activities have the following characteristics:

Academic Content They exhibit well-integrated academic content.

Strong Relationships They develop strong relationships between the participants and caring adults, older students, or peers.

Decision-Making They provide opportunities for authentic decision-making by the participants.

Student Leadership They allow the potential for student leadership in the activity.
