Some call it the "summer brain drain", says Scott McConnell, a professor of educational psychology. The “summer slide” is the tendency for students, especially those from low-income families, to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year.
Our goal is to keep low-income kiddos off the streets, out of trouble, and to keep them on the opposite side of the summer and spring slides by offering them innovative experiences.
Our workshop leader, Annie Jones, will inspire curiosities in myriad topics including science, technology, nature, visual art, music and more.
Each day of the workshop, Annie we will present a new concept and ask questions to muse students’ imaginations.
Because writing is a mirror that asks a lot of us, we are asking students to open the door to those deeper, hidden, places of their potential. They then think, discuss, and synthesize their ideas into writing.
SPRING BREAK WORKSHOP DATES ARE COMING SOON.
