E-mail/REACH September 18, 2014 September 2014. I'm working on a new model for RE and would like your comments. Here's the deal -
I'm calling it SpiritJam and I've received one of the 21st Century Grants from LREDA to help with the experiment. Essentially it means paid teachers and a monthly, multi-age theme. There are parallels to Workshop Rotation.
Fun! Katie
