Clubs activities are intended to be extracurricular and must not be included as a part or extension of regular class curriculum as this would create an inequity for those unable to participate. Allowable activities include creative activities in areas of interest with which a teacher has done research, has personal experience or a background in, or artistic enrichment available through online tools such as virtual field trips (so that e-learners can also be included).
In addition, “the Arts” is an all-encompassing word that includes multiple disciplines. Club activities through this program should primarily focus on projects in the visual or performing arts. Ideally, activities should focus on themes that would attract middle school boys to their programs (e.g., sci fi, space, video games, anime, comics, hip hop, jazz, etc.). However, clubs cannot be exclusive and all students must be welcomed (i.e., all genders are welcome and clubs may not require audition and/or application for students to participate).
