Description

Join us for one of the best things about TKG - Passion Projects! This is open to students ages 6 to 13. If you're looking for that 9-5 type learning stuff though, this may not be your spot. We believe children have a right to learning through play & exploration, no matter what age.

This class meets on Mondays and Fridays from 10am to 12pm. In addition to work, coaching and exploration, students have the opportunity for social time with our greater community. Please pack water and nutrition to sustain your student for the entire time.

Sessions are:

ALL YEAR = Sept 24 through Jun 14. (34 Weeks)

1st SEMESTER = Sept 24 through Jan 25 (15 weeks)

2nd SEMESTER = Jan 28 through Jun 14 (19 weeks)

Mondays only (for families attending FULL DAY Mondays) is also available.

This is how we do it:

Passion Projects develop real-life skills and provide a platform for students to integrate their multi-subject learning. Students will have the opportunity to share their projects with the TKG community, quarterly. Most materials are included but parents may have to purchase materials that are not regularly kept in our Studio. The top 5 skills we help them practice, at their developmental readiness, include:

  1. Goal setting

  2. Project Management

  3. Problem Solving

  4. Metacognition

  5. Presentation

Our younger students (ages 6), are exploring and beginning to find what they are passionate about. Students are often trying out new skills and experiences. Students may have a passion projects that can last a few days.

Students ages 7/8, have acquired skills and interest that support long term projects. Students are more aware of who they are and what they are passionate about. Students can commit 1-2 days a week to their passion project.

Students ages 9/10, have solidified many skills and can work independently. They are deeply passionate about their interest. Students choose to commit 2-3 days a week to their passion project and go deeper with research and depth.

Students ages 11/12 are more capable of project management, pushing themselves to learn new skills and be supported to focus on craftsmanship.

Students ages 12-14: Students are now experienced with project management and we look for them to expand their capacity with internships, relationships, and exploration.

If you want, you can join us for the whole day, 9am to 3pm and get immersed in hands-on: academic, social-emotional, social justice & conflict resolution learning. Learn more, here.
