PROJECT BASED LEARNING
Project-based learning is the instructional strategy of empowering learners to pursue content knowledge on their own and demonstrate their new understandings through a variety of presentation modes. Teachers can plan learning experiences that result in in-depth understanding of important ideas in the content. Because students are driving the learning, they can draw upon their strengths and create projects that incorporate their own interests, native language, cultural background, abilities and preference for using different types of media.
The STEAM Initiatives program to establish a diverse and inclusive pipeline for New York City's youth to engage in architecture, construction, and engineering (ACE) industries.
Our customized outreach programs enhance student awareness of these fields, beginning in middle school through high school and college.
This further enriches the broader goals of STEAM: to bring awareness
to the importance of science, technology, engineering, art/architecture and mathematics
in our educational system.
COMMUNITY SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS
Community Schools are neighborhood hubs where students receive high-quality academic instruction, families can access social services, and communities congregate to share resources and address their common challenges. Community Schools recognize that students who are hungry, can’t see the blackboard, or are missing school regularly face critical obstacles to learning in the classroom. By providing an extra meal, connecting a parent to job training, or enrolling a student in an afterschool program, they can lower barriers to learning and help kids succeed.
