Intensive Traditional Elementary Summer School with Teacher Learning Lab

Intensive Traditional Elementary Summer School with Teacher Learning Lab will take place June 30, 2014 - July 30, 2014 - Monday thru Thursday; 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for students. As with the traditional elementary summer school previously mentioned, students that did not meet the District Promotion criteria in Grades 1 - 5 are eligible to attend. These sites will also host the District Science Discovery Camp for English Language Learners participating in One-Way and in Two Way Dual Language Courses. Additionally, these schools will include Extended Year Services for some of our students in Special Education units such as PPCD, ADL, FLS, and TC.

The Learning Lab Concept is new this year. Two teachers will work side by side in one classroom to “sharpen the saw.” This co-teaching environment will allow teachers to increase their teaching capacity while students are given the ability to learn difficult concepts with much smaller teacher/student ratios. Additionally, teachers will be given the opportunity to use student artifacts to interact with research and each other in the afternoons after the students go home. These Professional Development sessions will allow teachers to make stronger connections between practice and research.

Traditional Middle School Intensive Summer Program with Teacher Learning Lab

The academic instructional time for students in the learning lab schools runs parallel to those in the regular summer school for middle school students, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The Learning Lab Concept at middle school allows for two teachers to work side by side in one classroom. This co-teaching environment will allow teachers to increase their capacity while students are given the ability to learn difficult concepts with much smaller teacher/student ratios. Additionally, teachers will be given the opportunity to use student artifacts to interact with research and each other in the afternoons after the students go home. These Professional Development sessions will allow teachers to make stronger connections between practice and research.
