Beyond Classrooms Kingston is a program that moves teachers and their classrooms into community museums, art galleries and community sites for an entire week. The site becomes an extension of the teacher's classroom where he or she can bring students to enhance their learning skills in critical thinking and problem solving while focusing on a subject or theme.
The Frontenac County Schools Museum will host three classes with their teachers:
November 7-11, 2016; December 5-9, 2016; and February 21-24, 2017.
More information is available at the Beyond Classrooms website.
