Four Weeks for America Program-Teach for America Intersession Experience

NOTE: Check back in late Fall 2011 for the 2012 Intersession Program Information

Background

Teach for America and The Center for Social Concern have teamed up to offer students an exciting challenge for the 2011 Intersession. Volunteer with a Teach for America Corps Member in Baltimore and spend your January solving problems that matter, learn about Teach for America, and make a difference for kids.

The Program

Work with the teacher to figure out a strategy for continuing high-quality instruction for
students once you leave. Projects include, but are not limited to, helping a Teach for America
teacher figure out how to: develop a math and science unit curriculum, perform data
analysis on classroom performance, develop classroom management tools, and undertake
other strategic planning.


Interested? Challenged? Excited? We are too!
