Since April 2020, we have been hosting a group of rising seventh graders from Arlington Public Schools in remote/online project-based learning and enrichment activities. More than remote learning, this is also about having productive, collaborative, and exploratory time with classmates while engaging collaborative, creative and critical-thinking skills. Activities have included 3D modeling and coding, science and engineering experiments, debating, book discussions, writing challenges, and imaginative exercises.
For the fall, we will be shifting the online time more to academic support and group study halls, with optional enrichment projects. Afternoon in-person, outdoor sessions will also be available.
If you have a child in other grade levels, we suggest you consider joining together with peers/friends to form a small group (4 to 8 students)
- Synchronous online meetings and asynchronous project-based learning
- Grades 5-8 (variety of subjects) and 9-12 (social studies, English, arts & humanities)
- Small groups of 4 to 8 students, ideally those who already know each other (parents, talk to others you know to form a group!)
- Elements can be flexibly adapted (frequency, subject material, learning goals)
- Curriculum geared to state standards and can be related to schoolwork or not
- Minimizing screen time to the extent possible
- Collaborating teachers provide a wider range of subject expertise
- Individual tutoring also available
