Extended Opportunities for Student Learning.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This skill packet presents training information on extended opportunities for student learning (before- and after-school programs, extended time, or extended school programs). The packet offers implementation suggestions, such as explaining what skills trainers need, how to prepare for delivering the packet, tips for working with adults, how to deliver the packet, and how to set up the training room. The next section describes the organization of packet materials. The materials in the skill packet are organized by activities and are described in a Packet Overview. These activities are arranged sequentially and described on individual direction sheets. Each activity direction sheet is formatted with the activity name at the top, a matrix giving the time necessary to carry out the task, the purpose of the activity, the setting, and materials and equipment needed. The direction sheet is divided into two columns. On the left are actions trainers should take to carry out the activity, along with necessary equipment and materials. On the right, the trainer is given a more complete explanation of how to do the activity. Following a packet overview and discussion of outcomes, five activities are detailed: setting the stage, completing the checklist, creating a vision, developing an action plan, and wrapping up and evaluation. A session evaluation form, bibliography, questions, program evaluation information, and suggested readings are included. (SM)
