Talking Trash Curriculum Guide Testing Session

Talking Trash Curriculum Guide Testing Session

Hi Educators!

This Wednesday, August 2nd, the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) invites you to participate in a testing session for our newest curriculum guide based on the student-made documentary, Talking Trash: Throwing Out The Big Apple.

In 2016, CUP and Teaching Artist Dillon de Give partnered with students at Frances Perkins Academy in Greenpoint to dig deeper into the complicated world of waste management. Students visited places like a waste transfer station and a recycling facility and interviewed key stakeholders. The crew took what they learned and created a documentary that explains where our trash goes, who decides and how else the current system could work.

Check out the project here!

After receiving rave reviews, we decided to dig deeper and created a curriculum guide for educators. The guide can be used on its own or as a companion to the video. It includes hands-on activities based on the Talking Trash project that can be taught individually or as a series. All activities are aligned with Common Core learning standards. 

We want your feedback! Come test the guide and tell us what you think.  You’ll also get paid $30 for your time!

Please RSVP to rsvp@welcometocup.org. Please include “Talking Trash Testing Session” in the subject line with your name, school/organization (if applicable), and your title/position. Space is limited.

We hope to see you there!
