  • Teach for LA: Expanded Learning as a Whole Child Laboratory for Future Teachers 
    1:00 pm-2:00 pm
    May 6, 2021

    Expanded Learning as a Whole Child Laboratory for Future Teachers 

    Julee Brooks, CEO, Woodcraft Rangers and Andres De la Peza, Director of Learning, Woodcraft Rangers

    Expanded learning programs like Woodcraft Rangers offer whole child curriculum that complements school day instruction. Based in constructivist practices, all activities in expanded learning programs are experiential and hands-on, programmatic framework that incorporates student choice, voice and are student-led when possible and youth workers are trained in how to create a safe and supportive learning environment with special attention to SEL competencies and inclusion. This training and the practical experience gained in expanded learning working directly with youth to implement these practices creates fertile ground for future educators to grow their own whole child approaches to learning.

    Woodcraft Rangers has served Los Angeles youth since 1922 and currently provides expanded learning programs, in partnership with LAUSD and other LA County LEAs, to over 14,000 young people every year. Woodcraft Rangers programs follow the Woodcraft Way, a whole-child methodology that focuses on body, mind, spirit and service of all participants and has been the foundation of WR programs for nearly a century.

    Join us to learn more about how expanded learning can be an effective laboratory for future educators and to discuss how there can be greater direct synergy and alignment between expanded learning programs and school day curriculum to create robust learning environments.
