A New Model for Community Engagement
Volunteer Reflection: Megan Walker
Don’t Procrastinate, Play Now!
Have you ever seen a child so deep into an activity that he ignores the world around? Bringing play into the classroom helps strengthen focus, independence, and problem solving, while also eliminating the fear of failure. Play can also help familiarize children with the world around them through social interactions and conflict resolution.Share this:
Transformative Effect of Education
America is a unique and ambitious experiment. In many ways, City Academy is equally unique and ambitious. Since its inception, America has offered itself as a place where people from across the globe could come and, through hard work and perseverance, realize the best that they could imagine and build a future of their own choosing. Many have heard the call of the promise of liberty and have sacrificed dearly in pursuit of seemingly impossible dreams. It is in this tradition of audacious determination that we at City Academy are inspired to fulfill our mission of transforming the lives of children, our community and, in some regards, our nation into something better than what has been historically known.Share this:

Can reading and writing be entirely replaced by another technology?
The key word here is entirely. As an educator, we teach students that such words used in an answer are not to be valued or considered. Eliminate that answer. Reformulate the question. To devise an answer to the replacement of reading and writing with another technology, one has to consider early memories.Share this:
