In one week, a group of educators, young people, and community leaders will visit 4 powerful sites of learning on the Oregon Innovation Tour. Spots are still open, so considering registering and joining us!
We’ll visit with a Latino youth mentoring program, a Reggio Emilia inspired co-op school, an elementary school providing students with opportunities to confront real environmental and social issues in their community, and a project-based high school where students engage in community internships and portfolios for graduation.
Act now and register for an open spot on the Oregon Tour!
I helped organize this and will be on the tour! There is nothing like seeing meaningful learning in action! Please message me with any questions
On May 1-3, educators, young people, community leaders, and policy folks will visit 4 powerful schools and learning programs in Oregon - we hope you’ll register and join us! The tour is an opportunity to experience the environments, talk to their leaders and youth, and find ideas to bring ideas back to our own settings.
As a participant on the NY Tour last week commented, “I didn’t think I would find original inspiration after 20 years of being a teacher. I thank you for this experience to find more to bring back to my work.”
These are the 4 sites we’ll visit on the tour:
- Ganas Program & U of O MECHa Students: Ganas provides a space for Latino youth to be mentored and become bi-cultural leaders, mentored by U of O MECHa students.
- Co-op Family Center: a Reggio Emilia inspired center where students are protagonists, parents are partners, and teachers are guides.
- Edison Elementary: a K-5 public school finding ways for students to solve real community problems
- Academy of Arts and Academics: a project-based public high school where students engage in internships, collaborate with the community, and demonstrate learning through portfolios.
