Weekday mornings in July from 8:30 a.m. until noon
Each summer, an overarching concept is selected for the Summer Interdisciplinary Program; it provides a focus to which all learning activities are connected. The concept for summer 2015 was “Up in the Air.” The overarching concept followed in 2016 is described below.
The summer program engages learners in a variety of topics using an interdisciplinary approach and including language arts, math, music, Latin, informal drama, art, and physical education.
Each learner receives personal documentation representing his or her learning and compiled during the session. It includes notes from each teacher describing the individual student’s participation as well as the student’s own observations.
The 2017 Summer Interdisciplinary Program will meet weekday mornings in July as described above, from July 5 through July 28. Please return in the future for information about the theme and focuses of this year’s program.
The Big Picture was the framework for learning at The Center last summer.
We engaged in closeups and panoramic views of topics using the lens of an interdisciplinary approach to many different areas of learning.
We pursued The Big Picture both literally and figuratively. We did mosaic work, honed our pantomime skills, and delved into how the world around us is organized.
What does the phrase suggest to you?
Art, literature, photography, a large world view, or something else entirely?
How do math, music, science, the Latin language and physical education fit into this framework? We found lots of answers!
