Event description

Description

This 'Residency Workshop' is an all-day immersion inquiry for adult learners into the innovative, 'Place-Based Learning' that is programmed regularly at the two Paulo Freire Freedom Schools (grades 6-8) and City High School (grades 9-12) in Tucson, Arizona.

"Fall and Spring Intersessions at Paulo Freire: At the end of the First and Third Quarters there is a week of special programming we call 'Intersession'. During Intersession students participate in four days of intense learning with a small group of students around one particular theme/topic. On the fifth day, Intersession groups meet to reflect on their learning and then with the entire community to celebrate together." see paulofreireschool.org/university/intersession/

"City High School was founded on the premise that great learning happens when students are engaged in the world around them. We view all of Downtown Tucson – and more broadly, Southern Arizona – as our extended campus. While rooted in the activities and lectures each day in classrooms, schoolwork at City High School also takes place in museums, open spaces, nearby neighborhoods, and the surrounding region." see cityhighschool.org/community/place-based/

Workshop participants will spend a day at CITY Center for Collaborative Learning's three demonstration secondary schools learning deeply about how teachers design and implement powerful, place-based learning experiences. The day will include the presentation of both program design and implementation suggestions from the schools' founders and teachers, guided observations of PFFS Intersession groups in progress (approximately 12 will be underway on March 9th), as well as, facilitated discussions of the PBL presentation materials and the field observations.
