Philosophy
Campus Calgary / Open Minds gives teachers the opportunity to move their classroom to a vibrant community site for an entire week. While working alongside experts, the teacher designs and implements a year-long interdisciplinary study that uses the week at the site as a catalyst for learning. Curriculum expectations can be met through meaningful connections to the real world.
How to Apply
1. Teacher applications require administrative (principal) support from the school.

2. For teachers applying for the first time and those interested in updates please join us for an information and proposal writing session Tuesday January 29th, 2019 at CBE Education Centre at 4:30pm (doors open at 4:00pm). Additionally, sessions at Calgary City Teachers' Convention will also be offered on Friday February 15th in the morning - one for proposal writing and one for CC/OM 101. You will be given the opportunity to indicate your attendance at these sessions on this application form.

3. You have planned and are now emailing your year-long interdisciplinary study around a big idea or question using the lens of the site as a focus. This long-term big idea or question will act as the framework for your year-long plan.

4. You have used this framework to develop a 1-2 page Proposal (visual web or outline) which will be emailed to jlmeredith@cbe.ab.ca .

5. Your emailed Letter of Intent will have introduced yourself (and team), your students, your school community, your passion and your understanding of the chosen site(s), as well as explain why and how CC/OM fits your year-long plan. Who are you and what will your year ahead look like with your CC/OM week as a catalyst for year-long inquiry?
