Astor Fellows Present at Fall Symposium

Recipients of the 2017 Astor International Travel Fellowship for New York City Teachers presented their findings to a group of fifty guests at the NYU Torch Club on Friday, November 3. The group, comprised of public school teachers representing four of the five boroughs and all K-12 grades, traveled to London in July with Dr. Fabienne Doucet to explore the theme, The Hyper-Diverse Classroom. Prior to travel, Fellows identified a specific research topic to guide their learning and were then grouped by area of interest. Presentation topics included student identity, culturally relevant pedagogy, the impact of demographics, and parent involvement.

Each year, Steinhardt Global Affairs awards fellowships to a new group of New York City teachers, who travel during the summer under the leadership of NYU faculty. The program rotates locations among NYU's global academic centers and campuses and program themes range from STEM education to special education, literacy, art and music education, and bilingual education.
