Video Premiere and Discussion: The Bronx River Study – Launching the School Year in Jessica and Andrene’s First Grade Classroom
This video documents the first weeks of school in a first-grade ICT (integrated collaborative teaching) classroom where, as part of a whole-school study of the neighboring Bronx River, the children learn about habitats of the river and its surrounding parkland. Teachers Jessica Lawrence and Andrene Robinson explain how they develop the curriculum based on the children’s questions, weaving important knowledge and skills into interdisciplinary projects. The video culminates with the Bronx River Museum — an all-school event that shares the children’s learning with each other and their families. The teachers of the featured classroom, the directors of their school (Bronx Community Charter School), and the videographer will be present. A conversation with them will follow the video showing.
