AP English Class Performs in Great World Text Program at NYU
Click here to watch a video on the NYU website of the Senior Institute AP English class celebrating and performing their work with The Thief and the Dogs, the great world text chosen for this year's Great World Text program.
This program is a partnership between NYU Gallatin students, a Facing History Teacher, and a group of our senior students. Each year, the work centers on a canonical text. The NYU students assist in discussing the text and mentoring Facing History students. The program culminates in a public presentation and celebration of creative piece developed by the students from their work with the text.
Four Facing History alumni came to speak to our students on Career Day this spring. Representing a diversity of fields, these alums spoke about the work that they do on a daily basis as well as their journeys getting there. Some of the fields represented were graphic design, community engagement, and legal services. After graduating from the Facing History School in 2010, each of these four alums have gone on to obtain college degrees and are now pursuing different interests in the private and public sectors. Two are also contemplating graduate school. To our current students, these four alumni represent the limitless opportunities that await them once they leave our school community and venture out into the world of higher education and beyond.
