This session will explore how thoughtful inquiry-based experiences centered on developing process skills in children (observation, problem solving, teamwork, etc.) are so well-suited for the afterschool environment. This approach lends itself to STEM, cultural exploration, and service-learning programming.
- engage in hands-on experiences of activities from Boston Children’s Museum’s award-winning “Beyond the Chalkboard” curriculum; and
- be introduced to proven high-quality teaching methods that are being used in afterschools across the country and around the world.
Training is offered through the DEEC Region 6 Educator Provider Support Grant by the BPS Department of Extended Learning Time, Afterschool, and Services (DELTAS)
