Making Connections: High School-College Collaboration Celebrates Twenty Years

Published March 30, 2011

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of ASHP/CML’s Making Connections: High School-College Collaboration Program. For the past two decades, Making Connections has worked with New York City public school teachers, providing in-service faculty development programs and innovative curriculum resources to humanities instructors. Over the years, the program has received consistent kudos from teacher participants as well as administrators for our intensive, creative, and effective work in building skills and improving learning.

Making Connections will celebrate the anniversary with a series of articles on transformative pedagogy to be published by Radical Teacher in 2009-2010. Former Making Connections faculty mentor Dr. Leonard Vogt of LaGuardia Community College/CUNY will serve as editor of the series. In addition, our updated program website will showcase podcasts of lectures by past faculty speakers (including Barbara Winslow, Brooklyn College, and Carol Groneman, emerita, John Jay College) as well as key primary documents, and a new seminar program calendar.

We look forward to celebrating this milestone together with past and current teacher participants, faculty, and staff.
