Academic Enrichment in Afterschool Training

Afterschool programs have the unique opportunity to enhance what children learn during the school day through teaching methods that are creative,hands-on and fun for children.
Given more time and flexibility, afterschool programs are a great setting to support school day learning.

By allowing children to explore academic areas such as science, math, language arts and social studies using various methods like inquiry based learning and interdisciplinary approaches to academic topics, afterschool staff can help strengthen student performance and achieve a greater understanding of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS).

The NJCCCS describe what students should know and be able to do upon completion of a thirteen-year public education.
Additionally, it provides local school districts with clear and specific benchmarks for achievement in nine content areas.

This training will look at afterschool programming through an academic enrichment lens which will support school day learning by addressing individual student needs and interests.

This project is funded in part with federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by No Child Left Behind, Title IV, Part B, 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) grant funds through a cooperative grant agreement with the New Jersey Department of Education.
