Urban Education Semester Application Deadline – Today

From Vicky Zwelling:

Interested in spending a semester “abroad” student-teaching in the New York City public school system?

This is a reminder that the deadline to submit your application for the Fall 2012 Urban Education Semester is this Monday, April 2. That’s right people, Today!

The Urban Education Semester (UES) is an accredited study away program that introduces students from all academic backgrounds to the complexity of issues surrounding urban public education. The program offers fieldwork in a diverse selection of classrooms and educational settings in New York City public schools. Students live in Manhattan, spend three days each week in a supervised classroom, and take some courses at Bank Street College of Education. There is an abundance of support and positive energy available for the small number of students in the program.

See here for more information or call Vicky Zwelling at 860-685-2180 or email her at vzwelling(at)wesleyan.edu.

Stilt-Walkers Needed

At some point, destiny calls everybody. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do, or what you said that one time when you were piss-drunk on Fountain. At some point, it comes for you.

And if you know how to walk on stilts, and I mean really hold yourself well on those long wooden poles, this is your moment. This is for you.

From Lila Becker ’12:

I’m looking for anyone who knows how to stilt-walk and would feel comfortable teaching a newcomer. It’s for a production that will go up in April. Stilts will be provided.

Interested parties should email lbecker(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Heed the call.
