…another year to Develop Leaders who EXPLORE NEW YORK!
Rensizzle Enrichment Week
OCTOBER 21-25, 2013
Key elements to planning a successful Rensizzle cluster:
1) Planning and Curriculum: Each cluster is required to have a curriculum and timeline developed collaboratively with the students. These curricula are posted on each cluster’s wiki, which will be the repository for texts, images, photos, video and audio documenting each cluster’s experiences. We are supporting each group with help planning trips, consultant support and learning experiences that will engage our students in deep-thinking, deep-questioning, and deep FUN.
2) Supports, Enrichment Grants: We have many partnerships, parents and others that may be available to us during Rensizzle Week, to help develop a strong cluster. Ask early for what your group may need.
3) Renaissance is a K-12 School. We always aim to share the Rensizzle experience with our K-6 students through an targeted, enriched week including outside partners, enriched programs including HS and MS students working with elementary classes and a stronger coverage schedule for missing arts, language and PE classes. K-6 classes are planning their own trips, inter-disciplinary art projects, cooking and much more!
