New York City Expedition

October 19 - 20, 2022

The junior class is spending this semester exploring how people throughout the 20th century and beyond have fought equality by breaking through strict legal and societal codes that uphold the American caste system. In NYC, students visited Ellis Island to explore numerous immigrant experiences, learned about aspects of Asian-America life in this country at the Museum of Chinese in America, and stood at the site of the gay liberation movement in the USA. At the Museum of the City of New York they read the stories of real New Yorkers who stood up as activists to make the world a better place. 

Said TGS student Olivia Weidele, "One of the most memorable parts of the trip was our visit to Ellis Island. Although I had learned about Ellis Island from its website, it was much more impactful to visit in person. Our visit to the Museum of the City of New York impressed upon me the impact that past protestors had made and the fact that any of us can contribute to making changes in our world."

EL Education and The Greene School have a different approach to teaching and learning.

We create classrooms where...

Learning is challenging.

Students are supported to do far more than they think they can. Teachers expect excellence and teach in ways that enable students to learn deeply, surpass standards, and produce high-quality work. Students and teachers model academic courage.

Learning is active.

Students are scientists, urban planners, historians, artists, and activists, exploring ideas and engaging in authentic work that allows them to contribute to their communities and promote equity and social justice.

Learning is meaningful.

Students build deep understanding of concepts and can apply their skills and knowledge to new contexts and real-world issues. They are learning with a purpose- getting smart to do good- and see that their education is in service of building a better world.

Learning is collaborative.

School leaders, teachers, students, and families work together to create a culture of respect, responsibility, and joy in learning. The school community is a place where all students and adults feel that they belong, support each other to succeed, and are inspired to be their best selves.

Learning is public.

Students produce high-quality work for presentation to audiences within and beyond the school. They reflect on what and how they learn with peers, teachers, and community members. Hallways and classrooms are filled with evidence of learning and beautiful student work.
