Engaged Opportunity Grants

Educational Psychology for Youth Development

Teaming Cornell students with rural youth in the Dryden Central School District through hands-on after-school programming.

Educational Psychology (EDUC 3110) examines psychological and cultural factors that affect people’s learning and the implications thereof for self-study, tutoring and teaching. To apply and explore what they are learning from texts and discussions, undergraduates will work with youth in rural Dryden, New York, in the context of after-school programs.

While programs will vary by grade level (elementary students, for example, will work on photo-illustrated short stories), all will emphasize general mindsets and strategies that support learning in and out of the classroom.
