History opportunity for Wagner students starts tomorrow!

Hello historians! We have an amazing opportunity for 6th and 7th graders during remote learning that starts TOMORROW! We are happy to offer you an amazing experience hosted by the New York Historical Society! The program they are offering our students is called “The Academy for American Democracy Online” and will take place weekly on Wednesdays starting May 27th and ending on June 17th. Each weekly session will be from 12:00PM until 2:15PM with a 15 minute break from 1:00-1:15. 


This program is exploring the essential question of: How does democracy evolve?


Each week will have a different focus question that will help you to learn about how democracy started in Athens and how it has changed over time and impacted modern governments around the world, especially the United States. By the time you finish your last session, you and your peers will have created an online magazine filled with the work you complete during the program.


So how do you get involved? This program is only open to 35 students. If you are interested in participating, please fill out the google form linked below. If more than 35 students apply, we will pick the first 35 students who filled out the form. If you plan on applying, you MUST be available for ALL sessions and for the entire work period each Wednesday. By filling out the form, you are committing to that.


We are looking forward to sharing this amazing experience with you!

Free Virtual Visit to Henry Street & Museum at Eldridge Street:

Wednesday, May 27, 2020, at 2:00 pm

Where can new immigrants turn for help? Where do they find community? What safety nets are available in times of need?

For millions of immigrants arriving to the Lower East Side at the turn of the 20th century, they found themselves asking these same questions. Neighborhood institutions offered an array of resources, advice, and communal support to newcomers navigating their new lives in America.

Join us for a virtual visit to the Lower East Side! First we’ll take a peek inside the breathtaking main sanctuary at the  Museum at Eldridge Street and learn more about the community who worshipped there. Then we’ll tour the Henry Street Settlement to learn about the pioneering work of Nurse Lillian Wald and the support she provided to the community during the Progressive Era. 

*Designed for students in grades 4-8 and their families.
