Four times per semester our students go out and visit fieldwork sites across the NYC area (and sometimes further!) or we bring in experts to answer questions and present on their knowledge. As part of the US government class that we have we visited the New York Historical Society and toured through their exhibit on presidential campaigning. While it was short trip and we had some logistical bumps along the way, some students really got some interesting information out of it.
I am a math teacher in the New York Department of Education. I infuse technology and real-world problems into my curriculum in order to prepare my students for the future. I would love for people across the country to recognize we teachers can't do it alone. If you don't believe me, come visit my classroom!
