(View Complete Item Description)

The Program Reflection Tool is organized around Oregon’s Elements of High Quality 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC). These consist of eleven elements of an effective afterschool program, all of which come from evidence-based practice (Finn-Stevenson, 2014; Granger, 2010; Hammond & Reimer, 2006; National Afterschool Association, 1998; Scharf & Woodlief, 2000). Next to each sub-element, you’ll find a list of indicators that describe “high quality” characteristics for each practice/element.

Afterschool Universe

(View Complete Item Description)

This astronomy program is designed for middle school children in out-of-school-time settings. The program explores basic astronomy concepts (like invisible light, telescopes) and focuses on the universe outside the solar system (stars, galaxies, black holes). The program is structured for use in a variety of settings, including astronomy days, summer camps, or year-long afterschool programs. Although session activities build concepts sequentially, each session activity is designed to be freestanding as not all participants may attend every session. A manual provides background information and descriptions of how to conduct each activity. A companion website provides additional information and resources for the program leader.
