Call for winter 2016 City Studies Teaching Artist

CUP’s intensive project-based curricula enable high school students to explore fundamental questions about how the city works through collaborative research and design. To find answers, students go beyond standard classroom learning and engage in active research, conduct site visits, and interview decision-makers and stakeholders. Students then collaborate with the teaching artist to produce innovative, engaging print or digital tools. These projects are taken up by neighborhood organizations and advocacy groups to educate others about the issue.

CUP is seeking a teaching artist to design and implement a 10-hour project for high school students at the International Community High School in the Bronx.
