This year's Summer Learning Clubs integrates math, literacy, and STEAM activities into a thematic approach for an extended period. Each class will blend inquiry, design, research, writing, and the arts with a focus on math, science and revision, testing, and technology, as students create a physical representation of their learning. This longer one-day program will seamlessly blend our traditional activities into a Project Based Learning experience and student-driven study.
Using a Project Based Learning model, students will work together to solve challenging problems that are authentic, curriculum-based, and interdisciplinary. Following this format, learners will decide how to approach a problem and what activities to pursue in their unique approaches. They gather information from various sources and plan, synthesize, analyze, and derive knowledge from it. Their learning is inherently valuable because it connects to something real and organic and promotes essential skills such as collaboration, revision, and reflection. In a culminating activity, students will demonstrate their newly acquired knowledge and communicate this with others.
