Story Time with Professor Kate

Sociology professor and former nanny Kate Averett reads aloud some of her favorite picture books from her childcare days. This “course” is suitable for all ages, but is ideal for the 6-and-under crowd.

Art + Science & Math

n class one, we will research and talk about rainforest animals we like. We will start to draw them in class. For homework (optional), students will have instructions for how to make a book out of things at home (paper, tape, scissors, string). In class two, we will write stories for our books and illustrate them. Between class one and two I will do some research on the actual animals the participants chose and share this information. For weeks 3 and 4, we will develop a different art project that engages science and math, based on requests of the class. This class comes with “homework” projects that take 30-45 minutes between classes. Students can also do optional additional research on the science topics. Parents can contact me at amy.whitaker@nyu.edu.

Great Stories Read Aloud

This course features great stories that are not necessarily well known but are classics (or deserve to be). For example, the first story was The Bat Poet, an award-winning folktale by Randall Jarrett about a young bat who is unable to sleep during the day. For April 23 we will read “Wolf Story,” by William McCleery, a book about a father making up a story with the very active help of his five-year-old son and his son’s friend Stefan.  The stories are great for K-2 kids, but older kids and precocious 4-year-olds will like them too. I have been reading aloud for decades, and my (young adult) children will join me.

Doing Science! Ethnography of the Crisis

Turning young people into their own ethnographic investigators. Giving them a few tools to document what’s happening around them in these uncertain times, and come together to try and understand it.

In this class, young people learn to think about themselves as social scientists. We will talk about what it means to create an archive of the present–exploring how what’s happening is affecting their communities. It also teaches them the value of history, and how they can play a part in creating an archive of the present, for future generations. (K-2, 3-5)
