  1. 1. Sample Enrichment Activities offered in Expanded Learning Time Schools, 2007-08 Please note: • This is only a sampling of the hundreds of enrichment activities offered in ELT schools • Many of these courses are interdisciplinary and cut across multiple categories • Many of the “non-core” classes (arts, music, dance, sports, etc) are connected to the MA curriculum standards in core academic subjects (ELA, Math, Science and Technology/Engineering, History and Social Studies) as well as those in the Arts, Foreign Language, and Comprehensive Health frameworks • The majority of the classes listed are stand-alone enrichment courses (either electives that students chose, or mandatory grade-level classes), while some, like Art & Geometry, are activities embedded in core classes • Some of these activities are teacher-led. Others are led by or co-led with community partners – arts and cultural institutions, health and mental health agencies, universities and high schools, after-school and youth development programs, and community volunteers. Those led by or co-led with community partners are marked with an asterisk. _________________________________________________________________ Visual Arts • Quilting (multiple)* • Puppet-Making (Hiatt)* • Stamping (North End/Silvia) • Jewelry-Making (North End/Silvia, Salemwood)* • Origami (North End/Silvia, King) • Recycling Architecture (King) • Exploration of Classical Painting (King) • Sculpture (Kuss) • Manga/Anime (Kuss) • Sewing (Kuss, Newton) • Knitting (Kuss) • Photography (multiple)* • Mural Painting (multiple)* • Paint for Peace (Edwards)* • Creating Eric Carle Books (Hiatt)* • Native American Pottery (Hiatt)* • The Rainbow Fish Printing Project (Hiatt)* • Eric Carle Collage Project (Hiatt)*
