Training: One Hour Session
What Are Linkages?
This session examines how after-school programs can connect to the regular school day. As an introductory activity, participants watch one 15-minute video segment to identify the elements of successful linkages.
Ask participants to define "linkages" between the regular and after-school day.
Viewing the Video
As they watch, have participants record examples of linkages they see in the video, as well as any questions that emerge.
- Discussion Questions
- What are the examples of linkages you noted?
