With the new-found independence of middle school, many students experience additional stress and anxiety.
You may have students that find the stress overwhelming: they have difficulty making and keeping friends, have challenges working in teams, or show extreme reactions to trivial problems.
You can help these students improve social and emotional skills and build self confidence with Hall of Heroes, an online game focused on the unique challenges of middle school.
Introducing Hall of Heroes
In Hall of Heroes, students enroll in a superhero middle school where they must build their powers and skills to make friends, resist peer pressure, and save the school from supervillain Dr. Klepto. In addition, students improve middle school readiness skills, such as locker combinations and getting to class on time. By building their skills during gameplay, they become more confident when they encounter similar challenges in real-world situations.
As an example, the scene below depicts a common source of anxiety for middle school students: choosing a seat in the lunchroom.
And since Middle school students are increasingly influenced by their friends, advice and cues for how to behave in new situations are provided by peers in the game.
