Event description

Description

We believe that school should be a place to develop your passion and nurture your purpose. We also believe that people, no matter how young or old, have the power to solve problems - their own and their community's - through the practice of planning, perseverance and recovering from failure.

One way that we nurture this empowerment and activism is through PASSION PROJECTS. Now, you can join the TKG community, just for this class.

This class meets on Mondays and Fridays from 10 am to 12 pm. In addition to creating and exploring with the help of a teacher/coach, students have the opportunity for social time with our greater community. This is open to students ages 6 to 13. Please pack water and nutrition to sustain your student for the entire time.

THE CLASS

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. 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. Confidence in developing thought process (Metacognition)

  5. Presentation + Public Speaking

Assessment of learning is done through teacher observation and student presentations at the end of each session.

Student cohorts -

Your student will be grouped in to the class that best meets her/his developmentally appropriate age.

ACORNS: 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 project that can last a few days.

NATURE GROWERS: 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.

REDWOODS: 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.

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

GALAXIES: 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.
