TR@TC prepares highly qualified teachers to teach in New York City public schools. In the summer of 2019, Residents worked alongside high school students from 3 partner schools to engage in a Citizen Scientist project investigating the health of NYC waterways and exploring how to improve them through policy. The summer program’s culminating event took place in the Smith Learning Theater where residents and students, supported by TR@TC alum and undergraduate interns from John Jay College (who are considering a career in education), showcased their findings and recommendations on the main stage for family, friends, and legislators.
If you didn’t get the chance to see it live here at Teachers College, we have an archived livestream of the 2017 Teacher as Activist: Supporting Immigrant Students in Urban Classrooms event with Drs. A. Lin Goodwin and Kevin Kumashiro.
