I am currently finishing my student teaching experience at School Without Walls Foundation Academy which is a part of the Rochester City School District. The 8th grade English Language Arts classes have been exploring poetry, short stories, theatre, music and a variety of other topics. As a final good-bye and culminating activity the 8th grade will host a poetry slam.

School Without Walls Foundation Academy is an Expeditionary Learning School. The theme for the Spring 2010 Expedition season is “progress” and our captivating title for the expedition is “Steppin’ to Success.” The expedition is centered on career exploration.
For the kick-off expedition event, students were able to hear intriguing career stories from experts within the Greater Rochester Area and participate in workshops to experiment with particular career paths. Students gathered information from entrepreneurs, engineers, dancers, poets, community activists, and athletes/coaches.
