The Eleanor Roosevelt Community Learning Center is dedicated to supporting and empowering parents and students to take an active role in designing and implementing an education program that ignites a passion for learning and stimulates the intellectual, emotional and physical health of the child.
May is Research Month!
May is the month to follow your students' interests and let them dive into a subject they want to know more about.
Guide them to decide on a topic they are interest in. Have them narrow their focus by deciding what they really want to know about that topic. (This is their research question.)
Begin researching and reading, to find the answer(s) to that question. We have a great library here, but check out your county library,too. Use on-line sources-but try to stick to sites that end with the edu or org - they tend to be more reliable. if you use Wikipedia, be sure and look at the sources at the end of any of their articles, and go directly to those sources for more information.
What should my student's research product be? The research project might culminate in a video, drama, poster or presentation board, written report, written report with visuals (graphs, photos, etc.), an art project that shows understanding of the topic. Whatever you and your child can think of!
We will have a school-wide sharing day on Monday, May 20 @ 10:30 am in the Valley Oak Room. Please come!
Showcase is Coming
Our musicians and actors are rehearsing madly for the May 23rd Showcase that will be held at the Main Street Theatre/Enchanted Playhouse at 6:00 pm. Admission is free, but we are hoping to have a fabulous fund-raising intermission for our performing arts department. If you can bring goodies to share, please do so, and if you can bring your spare change and bills to help us build a great program, do that, too-but most importantly, just come and enjoy the talents of our children. It will be a fun evening!
