Ideas? Do you want to get involved? If so, to help us better understand what you are interested in sharing with students over the summer, please go to your ideas for a summer activity.
School Year Program:
The E.L.O. school year is divided into four, eight week sessions plus a summer session. Within each session, teachers can propose two, four, six, or eight weeks of activity. Similarly, these activities can be proposed to occur 1, 3, or 5 days each week. Teachers are encouraged to collaborate, sharing the teacher time throughout the week (2 hours each day, 5 days per week).
The first step in moving forward is to prepare and submit a Session Plan for Learning that contains specific information about when and what you propose to offer. Basic information is asked, including: the age group you are proposing to teach; your goals in knowledge, understanding, and doing; and the activities you are proposing to support the learning goals. Please visit the following links to help you better understand what you should consider in putting together your learning plans.
planning form to get a better idea as to the types of information that you will need to provide. You can download the form, enable editing, and type your information on the form. You will then have to upload it and share it in Google Drive, email it, or print it out and give it to the Site Coordinator.
The Next Generation Science Standards have nicely outlined specific inquiry skills and outcomes, please see page 17 of Science & Engineering Practices to view grade level rubrics for each of the eight practices.
In addition to the Science & Engineering practices, 21st Century Skills further focus on student ability to communicate and collaborate, as well as learn to use their creativity and innovation to applied problem solving. A visit to the 21 C Partnership will help you better understand aspects of project based learning.
Please use the Session Plan for Learning below to share your ideas for taking students to the next steps in their learning.
