My City School TABLE
Students collaborate on creating lunches, planning and preparing for each weekly meal assignment. Science is woven into the experience with studies on nutrition, water impact, and food sources from farm-to-table. Students learn confidence in the kitchen and gain understanding of peer's food preferences and requirements. They participate in outside experiences to understand where food comes from and how it can be sourced in responsible, sustainable ways. Programs include:
•Slide Ranch Middle School Overnighter
•Garden For the Environment
•San Francisco Urban Agriculture
•Randall Museum Cooking in the Garden
My City School SPARKS
Students at My City School are immersed in subjects that ‘SPARKS’ their interest. Students conduct research, develop concepts, practice thought mapping, and engage with peers and the community advisors to present their Spark project as a presentation at the end of the project cycle. The Spark Project is project-based learning that demands supported planning, builds organization skills, increases reading & writing, and develops each student’s public speaking skills.
