My Students

BECA is a Title I secondary school located in the Morrisania section of the south Bronx. Every year at BECA, we hold intensives for 6-8 school days. Intensives are high interest courses designed by teachers, which offers students a time to participate in a week long problem-based learning. During Intensives, each class is mixed with students from 6th to 12th grade, to help create positive and enriching student culture. They engage in many activities and conversations to build strong relationships amongst each other, which often extends after Intensives are over. Our students appreciate this time and look forward to it every year. The excitement that fills their eyes when they get their Intensives survey, which gives a snip-it of each intensive, really is heartwarming and fills you up with excitement as well.

My Project

This year's student-led intensive is DIY. They have chosen 6 projects to lead a group of 50 students through, to create and give out during our community service trips on Thursday, December 20th and also some which they will be able to keep for their own memories. Some of the crafts they will be making are Rope Dog Toy, Pop-Up cards, Candles, Snow Globes, Glitter Nebulas, and Scrolls. The mason jars and holiday figures will be part of our snow globes and nebulas. The candle wax, candle wicks and seashells will be part of the candles. Lastly, the scrolls will be used to make our quote scrolls.

Our dog toys will go to a local animal shelter, and some of the candles, cards and snow globes will be donated to rehabilitation and elderly homes and hospitals as holiday gifts.
