Cultivating Joy, Connection and Curiosity through Well-Rounded Summer Learning
ODE believes creating joyful, engaging, and connection-centered summer learning programs based on the strengths and interests of young people is key to equity-driven summer programs. Summer provides a unique opportunity to allow educators additional time and space to:
- focus on building interpersonal relationships where students are well-known, cared for, and connected,
identity-affirming learning environments that sustain cultural knowledge, and
- integrate relevant,
hands-on learning experiences that foster joy, creativity, and curiosity.
