Class Details

SPEC 24 Class of 1959 TeachNYC Urban Education Program Students in this course learn about the front-line challenges of urban public education by working in one of New York City’s public schools. Participants engage in a full day’s program of observing, teaching, tutoring, and mentoring in their choice of more than 20 different school situations from elementary through high school. Each participating school will have a resident supervisor to meet with the January interns to arrange individual schedules and provide mentoring during the month. There will be weekly seminar meetings of all the interns who are expected to participate in the discussions, keep a journal, and write a 5-page paper reflecting upon their experience. The course will conduct orientation meetings with students before January, matching each student’s interest with appropriate teaching subject areas and a host school. Dormitory-style housing is provided along with some assistance with transportation and a $400 stipend for food. Further help is available for financial aid students. Interested students must 1) attend the course info session in early October or contact the Instructor ([email protected]) and 2) submit a statement of interest sharing a) why they are interested in the program and b) describing relevant experience (eg., tutoring, teaching, coaching, camp counselor work, etc.). The statement must be emailed to Program Director Tracy Finnegan (tff1) by October 13th.
