This week, our students were hard at work researching, planning, and presenting information in preparation for next week’s trip to New York City. Academically, the trip is situated right between their studies of immigration and 20th century American history.
New York is the perfect destination for learning about these topics through on-site experiences. One day will focus on the topic of immigration with visits to locations such as Ellis Island, the Tenement Museum, Chinatown, and Little Italy.
Another will focus on New York’s role in American history and the international community that New York City became throughout the 20th century with visits to sites related to the Revolutionary War, Wall Street, the World Trade Center, and the 9/11 Memorial.
