21st Century History: Spring Camp

Tuesday, April 14 and Thursday, April  16 

10:00 am - 10:50 am

Grades 7 - 12

This class does not promote a specific political ideology, and in fact, the terms left/right, conservative/liberal, Democratic/Republican are not important, but the issues are. I teach that these are merely brand names filled with rhetoric, and we talk a lot about rhetoric and sources of information. I teach students to understand the different perspectives on current issues, be able to navigate through the plethora of “facts,” and then decide how they feel about the issues. I seek to open the minds of students to see the workings of politics and world events that might not have been so obvious to them. The content for this class is developed each week so that it is current, and I reinforce the material with information and discussions about rhetoric, media sources, etc. We will read articles and watch videos about current political events and have class discussions about how they impact people throughout the world, not just domestically. Students will be expected to read articles or watch videos and do research on the accurateness of the articles and to investigate alternative opinions.

Art Of The Sketchbook: Spring Camp

Tuesday, April 14  and Thursday, April  16 

11:00 am - 11:50 am

Grades 4 - 8

To become good at drawing you need to draw....every day! Much like you practice an instrument every day. In this class we will explore different drawing exercises, including drawing what you see, doodling, abstract drawing, etc. We will talk about composition, line quality, texture, technique, and even color. Class drawing exercises are about exploring drawing in a sketchbook and will reinforce the drawing process and ideas; not to focus on final results. Each student will need to have drawing paper, a pencil, an eraser, a ruler, and different colored markers. Everyone is encouraged to draw every day outside of class.

Adventures in "Dreamland," A Role-Playing Game

Tuesday, April 14  and Thursday, April  16 

3:00 pm - 3:50 pm

Grades 6 - 12  (Maximum 5 students)

Dreamland is a new tabletop role-playing game that exercises language arts, creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, as well as social-emotional learning (SEL) through a fun storytelling adventure.

Currently in playtest, this is a great opportunity to escape our current Waking World into a fantastical land of magic and mythical beasts where words have reality-altering power. 

No experience necessary with role-playing games, nor the literary source material needed. 

All students will need an internet-connected computer with a video camera and microphone. Contact us right away if you do not have both.  

We will be using both Roll20 and Zoom for class (both are free, web-based programs).
