Ohio College Access Network

PLEASE NOTE: This PPT slide deck accompanies a webinar by the same title (the link to which is also posted on this website) which was held in March 2013 in Columbus, OH.

The live webinar/training was timed to coincide with student course selection for the upcoming school ...

School Year And Summer Enrichment Programs, Liz Nusken

Ohio College Access Network

References to 21st Century Learning Skills (integral to creating college- and career-ready graduates) litter the current landscape – educationally, legislatively, and in the media. Yet, the traditional school day is finite in length and the competition for the minutes it contains, intense. This PPT presentation slide deck accompanied the webinar by the same title that addressed those skills which might be most effectively developed outside of the classroom and will increase the participants’ awareness of exemplar school year and summer enrichment opportunities (both in central Ohio, statewide and throughout the country) that may, in turn, be communicated to the students and ...
