2011-2013. I had the pleasure to work with the children who attend The Family School in the South Bronx, who are from Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America, among other places. They loved opportunities to share stories and read together in Unison. And dramatic gains in achievement reflected their engagement.
Beginning from it's first year, starting with a small class of 9th graders, I helped the staff build the school around the Learning Cultures model, where it was used to structure academic programs and curriculum in all subjects. In 2013 the school graduated it's first class.
