My Students

Students at our STEM academy are vibrant, curious, and creative. We have students who are creating their own manga, students who code video games, and students who repurpose motors and hardware to build working toy boats and helicopters.

Students at DSA make innovative use of the resources that are available to them.

Unfortunately, our students haven't always had excellent access to a great number of resources. Many of our students come from families that are significantly impacted by the high cost of living in Boston. In addition, half of our students contend with the difficulties of immigrating to the U.S., oftentimes leaving parents behind and bravely forging a new life in Boston.

They can do many great things, but with access to better resources, the sky is the limit.

My Project

What made "Hamilton" so wildly popular? We will explore this question in a short unit that will inform students of the context of "Hamilton" as well as the literary techniques of Lin-Manuel Miranda. In this interdisciplinary unit, students will examine early American history alongside concepts core poetry techniques. With these experiences, students will have a deep understanding of the power of "Hamilton," as well as an appreciation for the skill and determination of Lin-Manuel Miranda other writers who endeavor to bring history to life.

Students will work together to produce performances depicting the drama of the founding of the United States.

Each group will create a short video performance of their group's scene or musical performance conveying the energy of the United States in its infancy.
