New Opportunity! Sustainable Cities After School Mini-Course

Revolution School is partnering with Penn Charter’s Center for Public Purpose, Fulphil, and WeLovePhilly to offer a 5-week afterschool mini-course (April 27 – May 25) focused on four specific issues in our city: food access, recidivism, clean air, and clean water. Revolution School students are invited to learn more and sign up HERE.

School of Thought students are piloting a new meta-cognition program using mental models developed by Farnam Street. This week we began the first module, “The Map is Not the Territory.” In this photo, students are collaborating to notice the similarities and differences in Philadelphia maps. Next week they will use maps to build a walking tour of our Philadelphia One Read, My Broken Language.

Erica Woods returned from the Villanova Admissions Office to work with 11th graders on interview techniques in advance of next Friday’s Revternship Expo. Each student developed their own 30-second “elevator pitch” and then practiced it with Erica in the hallway.
