How do online discussion courses work?

Students will meet for a 75-minute video chat once a week to discuss, enjoy activities, and build community together.

When are these courses?

Fall session courses meet for 7 weeks starting the week of November 4st. Check the course description for dates and times.

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 fall courses is November 3rd, so don’t delay! 

Course Offerings

Adult Classes

Teaching Math Creatively

For many of us, math class was arduous, frustrating, and pointless. Yet mathematician G.H. Hardy once said, “A mathematician, like a painter or poet, is a maker of patterns.” In this course we will explore math as a creative endeavor. We will discuss the reasons students come to fear and dislike math, and we will study ways of making math meaningful – for us and for those we teach.

Tuesdays, 7 – 8:15 pm. November 5 – December 17th.

Cost: $210. This course has discounts available for those working with underserved populations.

“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 teachers build trust, community, wonder, and insight, and all of us sometimes feel overwhelmed when faced with the task of becoming one.

In this course, students form a cohort for tackling teaching challenges. Through a balance of group discussion and skill-building activities, we will workshop puzzles that emerge at work, home, or in volunteer positions, explore new techniques, and hone the craft of teaching to bring out the best in ourselves and our students.

Mondays, 7 – 8:15 pm. November 4 – December 16.

Cost: $210. 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 in childcare or leadership positions. A wide range of ages means a diversity of generational experiences to draw on, key understandings for all teachers to develop.

Youth Classes

The Hero Within: Mythology as Literature, Social Studies, and Food for the Journey of Growing Up

Myths teach. They engage our minds, emotions, and problemsolving skills, drawing on the landscapes of the outer world to grapple with the questions of the inner one. In this reading, writing, and social studies course, students will use mythology to deepen their understanding of ancient cultures, build their language arts skills, and wrestle with the questions that have puzzled humans past and present, such as “what is goodness?” “Is all ever truly lost?” and “who are our allies on our own hero’s journeys?”

Ages 9-13 Fridays 4:30 – 5:45. November 8 – December 13. No class Thanksgiving week.

Ages 14-18 Fridays 3 – 4:15. November 8 – December 13. No class Thanksgiving week.

Cost: $189. For more information or to register, please contact us at integraliseducation@gmail.com

 

“Where am I?!” A Practical Geography Course for Citizens of the Universe

Location takes practice. Understanding where we are, what makes a place itself, and how it differs from elsewhere in the world all require map skills, historical context, and a lot of looking out the window – or, better yet, walking out the door! In this course designed specifically for distance learners, students will unlock the mysteries of nature-made places and human-made ones, learn their own whereabouts and how they relate to the rest of the universe, and think critically about the ways flora, fauna, geology, and cultural geography work together to form what we experience as “right here.”

Ages 9-14 Mondays 4 – 5:15 pm. November 4 – December 16.

Cost: $215. For more information or to register, please contact us at integraliseducation@gmail.com
