Going Beyond the Classroom
The courses are integrated with one another. Nothing is learned in isolation and all CELP activities are tied to the course content.
Students prepare through text, video and other media and time with the teacher can then focus on exploring and examining subject matter. Fieldwork is combined with seminars to develop thinking skills, allowing students to work together and make detailed observations.
Field trips tie into core program components to achieve course objectives. Some of these activities include extended overnight trips to Camp Wyoka, Cyprus lake and Halliburton Forest. Learn More >>
