COOKE CENTER SUMMER ACADEMY
Wednesday, July 5th - Friday, August 11th.
Taking full advantage of all that New York City has to offer...
The Cooke Center Summer Academy (CCSA) is a six-week summer program for special education students designed to reinforce the academic and social skills that were developedin the classrooms during the school year. Students participate in a small group, multi-sensory, thematic-based learning environment with integrated related services including speech and language therapy, counseling, and occupational therapy. Students are grouped based on differentiated learning profiles and are assessed continuously throughout the six-week program.
The program is divided into two, three-week thematic sessions. Themes are designed to offer students in depth, individualized literacy and problem solving instruction in a fun, engaging, and academically appropriate environment. Students engage in academic instruction that focuses on the following core content areas and skills: decoding and word study, reading comprehension, writing workshop, thematic content study, and mathematical problem solving. Community inclusion opportunities complement academic themes by providing students with experiences in their local community settings. Travel Training, Community Service projects, and Off-Site Education activities are integrated into the weekly schedule in order to maximize students’ experiences in the community.
