Here is an email sent by the Director of Innovation and Special Programs Gaby Russomango to faculty members today. I REALLY want faculty to get involved, but I am posting it here, because I love how this email sounds. Is that weird? I dunno. Anyway, here it is:
Below is a letter from US teacher Chidi Asoluka to students in the upper school, announcing an exciting opportunity to work with The New Community Project in a full day workshop on Nov 15. Many of you have asked about opportunities to understand unique ways to use design thinking in your curriculum. The New Community Project combines literature, design thinking, and social responsibility into one inspired learning opportunity for students.
Please take a moment to read Chidi's email below and follow the link to the new Community Project website. All faculty are invited to participate in this program. This is an excellent professional development opportunity. If you are interested in participating, simply follow the directions below to register. The event on Nov 15 begins at 9 and ends at 4. Lunch and snacks are provided!
Looking forward to seeing you there.
Gaby and Chidi
Thank you so much for your attention during my presentation on The New Community Project today. Again, we are a student think tank that combines design thinking and literature to help improve the city of Philadelphia. On November 15th, we will be hosting a one-day workshop where students will get the unprecedented opportunity to form companies and pitch ideas back to TreeHouse Books, a literacy non-profit located in North Central Philadelphia. Food and drink will provided.
