Field Trip to the National Museum of the American Indian - March 17th, 2016

On Thursday, tenth graders went to the National Museum of the American Indian to further their research on matriarchal societies. In Global History, tenth graders are researching the social structures that have caused divisions and inequity in this society: namely gender, race, and class, as well as alternatives to the approach this society has taken to these social divisions by examining other societies across geography and history. By the end of the semester, students will construct their ideal societies. Using their research about the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) of New York State, Pueblo societies of the Southwest, the Musuo of Southwestern China, and other matriarchal societies past and present, the tenth graders will examine whether or not gender equity is possible in human societies.

UN Women, the Malala Fund, and the Muslim American Leadership Alliance (MALA) presented the documentary, He Named Me Malala, as an extension of the Students Stand With Malala youth screening program, a collaboration between Participant Media and the Malala Fund. It was a special screening in honor of United Nations Human Rights Day and the last day of 16 days of activism to end violence against women and girls. There was also a panel discussion after the film. The event was held at the United Nations, and many of our students attended.
This was a great opportunity extended to the student through our participation with Global Kids.

Kinky Boots Playbill
A few of our teachers work with the Theatre Development Fund Stage Doors Project. TDF’s Stage Doors is a project-based arts education program that provides middle and high school students with a meaningful introduction to live theatre. Each participating class attends a Broadway or Off Broadway performance and participates in eight in-class workshops: four workshops conducted by a professional teaching artist and four conducted by the classroom teacher. The workshops actively engage students in inquiry, creativity and community.

This past November half the school had the opportunity to see Kinky Boots on Broadway.

Hernando Umana-Angel-Said it felt like a Beyoncé Concert with a full house of students. (Also gave interview for our Stage Doors campaign)

Hernando Umana: “High school kids from the Bronx were cheering for drag queens and were so receptive to the message. There's no way this would've happened when I was in high school. I've always been proud to be part of this show but what happened today is something I'll never ever forget.”


A Stage Door Student: Got her entire program signed by actors!
