Childhood Education Majors Collaborate with City Honors Middle School Students
Buffalo, New York – March 16, 2016 – Twelve D’Youville College graduate students in the Childhood Education program are working with 6th- 8th graders at City Honors School on North St., on a special Buffalo Public Schools-D’Youville College collaboration project.
The BPS-DYC National History Day collaboration began with a district professional development workshop for BPS teachers conducted by Dr. Julie H. Carter, Associate Professor, and Dr. Hilary A. Lochte, Chair of Education, on integrating National History Day into the social studies curriculum.
This semester, Dr. Julie H. Carter and Dr. James P. Lalley, Professor, integrated National History Day mentorship into one of Dr. Lalley’s courses.
The 12 students have been mentoring 6th-8th graders at City Honors to create original research on local historical projects of interest.
The D’Youville students served, along with others, as judges at the Buffalo and WNY Regional History Day competitions that took place on March 11 and 19.
With the help of D’Youville College students middle school students at City Honors designed a range of projects on local topics including women’s rights, local figures, and Buffalo’s role in jazz history.
