    Out -of - School Learning Updates

    Summer School Programming- 3rd - 8th Grade

    Update from the Chancellor in regards to summer school- 

    In continued adherence to federal, State, and City health guidelines, we are adapting our summer school model for summer
    2020. This year, we will offer summer school via remote instruction, allowing us to provide more students than ever before
    with the academic supports they need and a bridge from this school year to the next. In addition to academic instruction,
    students participating in these summer school programs will also have opportunities to go on self-paced virtual field trips
    and engage in daily social-emotional learning activities.

    Please click on the link below to read the Chancellor's Letter to Families for more information.

    Peer teaching is a method by which one student instructs another student.  The benefit is peers and students share a similar discourse, allowing for greater understanding.  "Research also indicates that peer learning activities typically yield the following results for both tutor and tutee: team-building spirit and more supportive relationships; greater psychological well-being, social competence, communication skills and self-esteem; and higher achievement and greater productivity in terms of enhanced learning outcomes."
