Chalk Talk: A Club For Everyone
It seems that today’s school have more extra-curricular clubs than ever. There are photography clubs, computer clubs, game-based clubs, and yoga clubs. Some people think that there are too many clubs. They believe that children are busy enough without clubs, and don’t need take more time away from studying core subjects. A child who is part of an extra-curricular clubs is not taking time away from studying core subjects. Rather, he or she is taking the things the or she learned in core subjects and applying them to other areas of interest. Kids in book clubs work on reading and analyzing texts. Kids in photograph clubs use science and art to create their masterworks. Kids in computer and game-based clubs put their math knowledge to good use. Kids in yoga clubs supplement and apply the lessons they learn in P.E. The whole point of education is to teach kids to apply the skills the learn in school to real world situations. Kids in clubs are doing just that.
