In the six-week course “For the Love of Music” we talk about movie and Broadway musicals.

Several of the musicals we explore have a historical context.

When we talk about “Hairspray,” which is set in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, we look at a few civil rights icons, including Ruby Bridges, “the first African-American child to desegregate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana during the New Orleans school desegregation crisis in 1960.”  (Wikipedia)

A to Z Blogging Challenge Theme Reveal: Spotlight On “The Road” Scholars

A to Z Blogging Challenge on The Road We've SharedFor the past four years, we’ve participated in the A to Z Blogging Challenge.  Starting in 2010, The A to Z challenge has grown to include over 1,000 bloggers. For our fifth year, we’re going to talk about our online courses designed for adults who have Down syndrome.

The Road Scholars is a place where our community – adults with Down syndrome and the people who care for them – can come together and learn about topics that matter to them.

Our self-advocate catalog includes a mix of free and paid courses:

  • World Down Syndrome Day Celebration
  • ‘Tis The Season
  • Let’s Get Ready to Rumble
  • For The Love Of Musicals
  • Mouse Movies – Halloween
  • Over the Rainbow
  • Cooking and Nutrition (Fall Flavors)

We have both independent study (no set time frame) and more traditional online courses where students learn together on a specific timeline.

Our April posts will highlight topics and activities covered in these courses.
