Middle School Week

The new Middle School Intensive Week was created in January 2018 to give students pride about the very rich cultural and historical capital that is part of their legacy in the South Bronx.  We also wanted them to begin to see themselves in the history of Hostos and the South Bronx and for students to see their own stories within the histories. It was important to all of us that this became something other than just a “transplant week” of the same classes in a different location.  Hostos Lincoln Academy middle school teachers collaborated with Hostos teaching artists and instructors in each classroom to study the history of CUNY, Hostos, and the South Bronx.
