Educating RARE Students
Berry, David
Athletic Training Education Journal, v5 n2 p90-93 Apr-Jun 2010
Education is considered to be one of the most important activities children, adolescents, and adults will ever engage in during one's lifetime. Not only does education, particularly higher education, prepare an individual for a professional career, it is also designed for personal, civic, and cultural development. Research has demonstrated the more education (and based on degree type) an individual acquires the greater potential he or she has for future professional and financial success and stability while acquiring knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary for active participation within the community and home. However, millennial generation students, think, behave, and engage in life much differently than Baby Boomers and Generation Xers. They have forgotten the fundamentals that constitute academic excellence. Behaviors such as dedication, commitment, responsibility, accountability, and respect must be the driving force behind the development of successful, confident, achieving, and goal-oriented Millennial students. In this article, the author proposes to use RARE model to educate students. The RARE model focuses on four basic tenets: (1) Responsibility; (2) Accountability; (3) Respectfulness; and (4) Excellence. (Contains 1 figure.)
