Hello Robinson Families!
WE NEED YOUR HELP for Robinson University 2018-2019!
RU is a time for Robinson kids to try out things that fall outside of our typical school day. We want to show kids a snapshot of the wide wide world around them. Historically, sessions have been led by Robinson staff, but we would like to introduce Robison kids to the wonderful resources and talents in our family community.
With that in mind, do you have an interesting skill, trade, experience, or topic you are passionate about? Would you be willing to teach a ‘course’ to Robinson students who are eager to learn about that topic (with a Robinson staff member by your side?) If so, keep reading!!
What are we looking for??
We are looking for adult instructors to commit to, ideally, all 6 of our RU sessions over the year. Before that shuts you down, we can work with whatever you can give us! :)
Sessions will fun from 9:30-11:00 a.m. on our early release days: 9/28/18, 11/3/18, 12/7/17, 1/18/19, 3/1/19, and 4/5/19.
Kids will choose a new session each time. If you offer to teach a sign language course, you will have six different groups so you only need one “lesson plan.” And remember, you are not on your own ~ you will have a fabulous Robinson staff member as your co-teacher (and potential crowd control!).
Some examples of topics we brainstormed that might give you an idea of what we are looking for (but not limited to) include:
Video game design
Immersion in Culture (French, Spanish, etc.)
Dance (ballet, tap, hip-hop, break-dancing)
Learning more about different professions: Zookeeper, business owner, doctor, chef, baker, pilot, professional driver, fireman, policeman, Lifeguarding, nursing, scientist, engineer, etc.
We hope you will consider jumping in ~ the kids love the out-of-the-ordinary opportunities we can provide on Robinson University days!
