IU has finally arrived in Newark! The Writing Partners, Collaborators, Evaluation Team, Documenting Team, the Fund Development Team have been excited to begin the next chapter in this year of Books and Beyond. The purpose of the trip includes wrapping up stories and illustrations that writing partners have been working on since TEAM’s visit to IU in September. However, before they begin, IU spent the day exploring the Newark and TEAM Schools. Some highlights from the day include:
- IU students tour the newly founded SPARK Elementary School and TEAM Academy
- Montclair Cinema hosts a special screening of Waiting for Superman, a documentary that explores how the U.S. education system has failed many of its students.
- TEAM teachers, principal, and staff panel discussion
