An information session for the Urban Education Semester will be held on, Oct. 12, 5:30 – 6:30, Allbritton 103. Pizza and drinks will be served.
Through the Urban Education Semester, students spend a semester in New York City, engaged in a combination of supervised fieldwork (primarily teaching but there may be some urban policy placements) and coursework offered by Bank Street College of Education. This interdisciplinary, academic immersion program earns Wesleyan academic credit and introduces students from all academic backgrounds to the complexity of issues facing urban public education. Ideal program for students interested in urban environments, community development, teaching and learning, and systemic reform. For more information, visit www.urbanedsemester.org.
Applications for the Spring 2011 program are due to Vicky Zwelling in the CRC on Wed. Nov. 3.
