In our school, we are incredibly lucky to have students from all backgrounds and neighborhoods of our sprawling metropolis. This diversity creates a rich classroom environment which challenges and enriches student learning. This year, we hope to expand opportunities to explore and connect education with experiences outside of the classroom. This requires money that is rather scarce given educational funding.
Our students are creative, inquisitive and passionate about history, especially when they can connect it to their own lives.
We hope that we can continue to grow this love of history by venturing out into our own, rich city. Thanks for any and all support!
Our students have grown up in the age of media: social, film, and news. With this overload of information, students must develop the skills to think critically about what they are presented in these formats. Harriet, a film about Harriet Tubman, is being released just at the beginning of our unit on the Civil War.
This is the perfect opportunity for our bright, curious students to practice critical literacy skills with a type of source they see all around them.
Our students truly shine when given the opportunity to connect their content to wider life skills and the world around them. Thank you for your support!
