VCAL PROGRAM

VCAL Literacy program – Crashing Into Potential (Foundation – Senior)

Do your students struggle to read? Scott has a program that will not only get students reading, but will also fully engage them throughout every page. The program is designed to not only encourage students to read but leave them feeling motivated and empowered to make critically important decisions that will impact the rest of their lives.

Scott was a 23-year-old electrician when time stood still. He was right in the middle of the ‘danger zone’ age for major head injuries (17-23) when he had a head on collision on his dirt bike. This accident was about to define him. He found himself in a foreign world of breathing and feeding tubes, and at the begging of his greatest triumph. Follow Scott’s journey with your students and learn through his remarkable recovery, what happens when we don’t surrender to our perceived ‘abilities’. When we don’t throw in the towel. WHEN WE DON’T GIVE UP!

The Teachers Recourses will cover:

  • Literacy outcomes 1-8 (All levels)
  • Oracy outcomes 1-4 (All levels)

Add in his presentations to cover:

  • Personal Development Skills (Unit 1 all levels)

"Just wanted to express my gratitude to you for your inspiring presentation to our VCAL students.

The whole gang (teachers, students and myself alike) got so much out of it. You artfully blended humour and self-deprecation into an engaging and thought provoking session, while providing practical tips and strategies for us all to better navigate through the trials and tribulations of life."

–Dale Gemmell, Skillinvest

Persistence Is The Key

To achieve our goals, we need to employ persistence into our attitude.

An important lesson I have learned from my journey – a journey I hope you’ll never have to take – is about mindset.

Had a great time talking to the mob at Skillinvest on Monday! Remember, we need to take responsibility for the choices we make! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! Yesterday I had the absolute please presenting to this youth group at Skillinvest. The message was, “Don’t Give Up”. You guys can achieve anything you want, the first thing you need to do is believe! These guys are studying my book Crashing Into Potential: Living with an injured brain, in their class and I am SO humbled to hear they all wanted me to sign their books! Don’t give up guys you’re better than that! I’ll see you next month for my resilience workshop • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! Geez the 70’s were some good times weren’t they? Here’s a picture of me and my sheila at a local party just down the road! I remember this party so well, it’s like on was only last Saturday night! It’s funny how fast time flys hey? Good times @jasminelabrie weren’t they? Received this email on Friday after my presentation to Vermont Secondary at their year 12 study camp. Once again, I’m very humbled to see the impact I’m making. I love my job! Thanks @anniedyett_ • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals!
