SPOTLIGHT IN THE EXCELSIOR
SF Community Summer 2015
Summer is just around the corner! As we gear up for summer planning let’s take a look back at what SF Community did last summer…
Last summer at San Francisco Community School we focused on Environmental Project-Based Learning (E-PBL). This coursework offers opportunities for students to actively explore and address environmental challenges while building skills in teamwork and communication, research, data collection and analysis, community engagement, and reflection. E-PBL enables and requires students to delve deeply into their academic content while investigating issues in their own backyard.
At SFC we brought in subcontractors from Destiny Arts, SCORES Soccer and Bricks for Kidz to help administer some of the everyday learning. Boys and Girls Club of SF and SF Ballet partnered up this year to also take 15 youth from SFC to Dance Camp for a week allowing youth to see what it would be like to dance with real ballerinas. The kids took field trips to any and everywhere they could dream of from a Giants Game to the Exploratorium.
