Students attending the 12:1:1 program at Fowler/PSLA often have varying degrees of social and emotional deficits. Social-emotional learning is a large component of our program. As a result, part of the mission at Fowler/PSLA requires that development of creative high interest programming that facilitates personal skill development to address social emotional needs. The sport of fishing teaches many wonderful life skills including patience and perseverance. In addition to utilizing these skills, students will plan and prepare the necessary equipment for a successful fishing trip. By working within a group students can practice using their interpersonal skills learned at Fowler/PSLA.
