How do online discussion courses work?

Students will meet for a 90-minute video chat once a week to discuss, enjoy activities, and build community together.

When are these courses?

Summer session courses meet for 7 weeks starting the week on July 7th.

The weekly meeting time will be determined by doodle poll at the start of each session to ensure that it works for all involved.

Technology? Eek!

If you are a family who limits screen time, or an adult who quails at the prospect of needing technological skill, rest assured: we will use video chat only as a means of making group discussion possible for people in multiple locations and will require no further tech usage.

Check out our course options below, and, as always, get in touch if you have questions, or if there are offerings you would like to see in the future. 

Registration deadline for summer courses is July 1 and classes start the week of July 8, so don’t delay!

Deepening Summer Learning

Summer is a time of great adventures, of sensory richness, of altered schedules, and people and places both new and dearly familiar. Come explore the ways that these delights can support your learning goals for children and teens without eclipsing summers’ freedom. This group is a place to swap ideas, workshop concerns, and learn how to infuse teaching – whether at home or in the classroom or summer program – with all of the wild joy that seasonal learning has to offer.

“How Do I Teach This?”

Whether we are parents, academics, workshop leaders, or supervisors, life calls on us to teach in a myriad of ways, yet seldom tells us how. Good teaching skills can make the difference between beds made and teeth brushed or a screaming tantrum in the mornings. They determine whether participants leave a workshop smiling and moved, or dissolve into dissent and accusation and whether a work environment operates to its full potential or struggles through the week. Good teaching builds trust, community, wonder, and insight, and all of us sometimes feel overwhelmed when faced with the task of doing it.

In this course, students form a cohort for tackling teaching challenges large and small. Through a balance of group discussion and skill-building activities, students will workshop puzzles they face, explore new techniques, and hone their teacher craft to bring out the best in themselves and their students. Existing projects, such as workshop design or curriculum planning, are welcome but not required. No prior teaching experience necessary.

This course has discounts available for those working with underserved populations.

Adult classes accept anyone working on expanding their teaching practice for work in the working world, including teenagers working in summer camp or childcare positions. A wide range of ages means a diversity of generational experiences to draw on, key understandings for all teachers to develop.

 Costs

 $220 per course. Need-based financial aid is available.

Talk to us if you need flexibility for overnight camp.  Midession enrollments will also be considered on a case by case basis and prorated accordingly.

Youth Classes

Epics and Adventures

Summer is a time for stories, for new experiences, for pushing comfort zones and seeing just how much we’ve grown since last year. This multi-disciplinary class gives young heroes a chance to share and reflect on their summer adventuring in a vibrant, student-built community, while also weaving in academic content such as mythology, history, map-making, and calculation, to keep school learning fresh and relevant as the summer unfolds.

Being Me

The worst part of growing up is that we don’t come with instructions. This is difficult for all young people, but those whose inner workings or identities don’t match mainstream culture also face extra challenges. It is easy to feel like the Ugly Duckling, not realizing that one is meant to be a swan, and, worse, often the supports available focus on making students more like other ducks, which is both stressful and a waste of their beauty as skills as individuals.

Open to everyone, but particularly recommended for students with learning differences (gifted, disabled, or twice exceptional) or minority identities, this course gives young people a warm, fun community in which to identify and nurture their inner swan, dragon, artist, warrior, frog prince, mad scientist, etc. and support writing the instruction book for growing into their best selves. It is also a chance to practice the skills needed to interface those selves with the wider world, mentored by teacher(s) whose growing up journey has been shaped by just that.

Youth classes accept students aged 8-17. Depending on enrollment, children will either be grouped by age or taught using multi-aged community-building methods with individualized time for age-related topics as needed.  

Costs

 $220 per course. Need-based financial aid is available.
