CUP is seeking a public high school collaborator!

CUP is seeking a public high school collaborator!

 

CUP and the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) are partnering to bring a City Study to a Title 1 public high school classroom in Queens to connect a teacher’s core curriculum to climate change.  

CUP and NYSCI will partner with a CUP-trained Teaching Artist and a high school teacher to create a curriculum specific to the teacher’s needs. Students will get out of the classroom to research climate change in the school’s community, engage in project-based learning and critical analysis. Students will use design and art to make a final product that teaches others about climate change.

Past City Studies have produced a set of postcards on green infrastructure and a series of zines on asthma in the Bronx. The curriculum CUP develops along with the Teaching Artist and high school teacher can then be used in subsequent years by the high school teacher with new students.

Through City Studies, students get out of the classroom and interact with New York City and the people who make it work. Students engage in active research and use their art and design skills to synthesize information and break down complex issues. Students learn about the city from real people, by coming into direct contact with decision-makers and stakeholders.

Program start and end dates are flexible depending on the school’s schedule, but the City Study must consist of 10 contact hours with the students in the classroom this fall. City Studies work best with a maximum of 30 students. Schools must be Title 1 and located in Queens.

If you are interested in bringing a City Study to your classroom, please send us an email at jenn@welcometocup.org by 5 pm Monday, September 19th. The email should include:

1)   Your name, job title, and phone number where we can reach you.

2)   The name of your school and address.

3)   Answers to these questions:

+ Briefly describe your school.
