Faculty and staff with children in first grade through senior year of high school are invited to register their children for the fall pilot of the DePaul Open Windows project. Developed by the Department of Teacher Education, this pilot program will provide a weekly 30-60 minute online supplemental learning experience created and led by DePaul education majors.

Facilitators will match children with DePaul education majors enrolled in courses that help them practice skills related to teaching those subjects including children's literature, social studies, arts methods and math. 

Activity topics include book clubs, history mysteries, getting to know the world's greatest artists, science, and people in history you don't know but should know, with more topics to be added. Facilitators plan to build on student interest as much as possible. 

Partners will be matched predominately by age level, day and time availability, and interests. Lesson length will vary by age level. Compliance requires parent or guardian supervision.

Space is limited, and spaces are first come, first served. Submit an interest form on the College of Education website.
