Here are photographs from an article, Are We Leaning the Right Lessons From New Dorp High School? in Atlantic Magazine.
The high school we visited in Staten Island had a poster at a security table that said “don’t bring guns to school” with pictures of guns. It is great that the school has made big improvement with their writing program and influencing the students and other schools as well. The article also raises question and challenge on how to teach writing to students. Thanks to Monica, the student there who sat for us for the picture with her writing piece.
