Schools across the country are using the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum to engage high school students and enhance learning in their classrooms. Teachers of almost any academic subject: English literature, social studies, art, technology, science, health, journalism, communications, and psychology – among others – can select relevant lessons, concepts, and activities that not only enhance social and emotional skills, but also engage students in the academic experience.
