Summary of Classes Offered Report
This spreadsheet provides ADE staff with a snapshot of what classes are being offered and the number of students that are being served. It enables ADE staff to provide technical assistance throughout the year to grantees that may need additional guidance instead of waiting to receive data at the end of the year in the APR.
Change to Form!!
This year there is a slight change to the form. Instead of completing separate forms for the Fall, Spring and Summer classes, the form is now set up as a continuous summary of classes form, meaning you will use one form per site for the entire fiscal year (July 1, 2011-June 30, 2012). Please contact your program specialist if you have any questions regarding the new form.
4-H is a youth development program that fosters an innovative, “learn by doing” approach with proven results. 4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization, with research-driven programming developed by our nation’s Cooperative Extension System focusing on science, citizenship and healthy living. We are lucky to have this program here, because it is part of the University of Arizona, one of the nation’s 109 land-grant universities.
The 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development, a longitudinal study conducted by the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University, shows youth engaged with 4-H are:
- Nearly two times more likely to get better grades in school;
- Nearly two times more likely to plan to go to college;
- 41 percent less likely to engage in risky behaviors; and
- 25 percent more likely to positively contribute to their families and communities.
We expect you’ll leave the day with many exciting strategies and ideas to support and sustain your own 21st CCLC program.
Following this day long professional development event, shorter trainings will be offered regionally to teach older students, 21st CCLC staff and volunteers to utilize the Cooperative Extension’s research-based curriculum and resources to lead high quality engaging programs for youth.
21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) programs grantees will have an opportunity for a future partnership with the University of Arizona’s, AZ Science of Baseball (ASB) program.
The ASB Program aims to spark a passion for science in students by approaching them through a sport they love: baseball. During this training Dr. Lynne Borden and Dr. Ricardo Valerdi of the University of Arizona, will discuss youth development research and STEM program ideas to engage middle and high school students in 21st CCLC programs.
Participants learn the principles of math, physics, and statistics as they apply them to baseball. The program’s integrated curriculum includes both academic and athletic components. The academic curriculum is sub-divided into four modules, each organized around a fundamental baseball skill: running, hitting, fielding, throwing. Each module integrates lessons in math, science, history and social studies. Students explore the history of the Negro Leagues, the influence of culture on the game in Japan, and the implications of the rising influence of Latino ballplayers in the Major Leagues.
The teacher (UA Engineering Students) and materials would be provided as part of the package. A Field trip to the University for 21st CCLC students would incorporate support for parents on how to navigate college access. The University of Arizona’s Center for Research and Outreach utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach integrating both Research and Outreach to support those who work with and on the behalf of children, youth and their families.
