Jubenville has devised a rubric called a “Self-Directed, Self-Selected Coaching Model,” which he implemented in his fall 2016 classes. It’s a three-phase structure that helps students investigate issues in an organized way.

“I will say, ‘Tell me a typical problem in the industry,’” Jubenville explained, “and the question was, ‘Should high-school athletic directors be able to actively pursue corporate sponsorships in order to build quality athletic programs?’”

The students will attack the problem individually within Jubenville’s template. They’ll research concepts and theories, explore real-world results and analyze the audience, statistics and motivations that factor into the issue.
