Academics is the cornerstone for success at all ages. "Day in the Real World" uses it's game experience to show students the importance of grades and their future. Students are able to grasp the concept of college admissions and how their grades and test scores play a factor in the path to their future career.
The innocence and dreams of a child is a student's most valuable assest. Unfortunately many of our students do not associate their current success with their ability to enjoy the life that they have envisioned. Using creative techniques, DITRW simulates a working environment to show kids the concept of bills and budgets.
Times have changed, but peer pressure is still prevalent and "kids will be kids". But the actions that students take now can drastically effect their future goals. This includes but not limited to study habits, relationships, and even criminal activity. The "Day in the Real World" game forces the students to make life changing decisions under the protection of simulation.
In today's corporate society, the ability to work with others is almost as important as the ability to do the work. The "Day in the Real World" game simulation includes opportunities for students to showcase professionalism and to work with each other to achieve common goals in an effort to win the game.
