My time at the University of Tampa has been filled with experiences that have prepared me for my future career and everyday life. The communication department has been a significant part of that preparation. I have been able to apply the skills learned in the classroom in each task I dedicate myself to. My journey throughout college was overall positive, and that has a lot to do with the courses and professors I experienced. Not all students have the same opportunity.
PEDAGOGICAL APPROACH Brooklyn Connections uses materials from the Brooklyn Collection to illustrate the experience of living in Brooklyn through primary sources and to “connect history to self and make meaning” (B. Murphy, personal commun.). By focusing on the historical experience gleaned from newspaper articles, maps, photographs, and other materials, Brooklyn Connections teaches crucial research skills and demonstrates the “validity of experiential knowledge” among students, as highlighted by Accardi in her discussion of feminist pedagogy (2013, p. 37–38). Our hip-hop lesson will emphasize not only the inclusiveness of feminist pedagogy, but also the three main goals of culturally relevant pedagogy (Ladson-Billings, 1995) by drawing on the
Jessica Boccardo is earning her PhD in Public Administration. They focus on specialized, STEM high schools in New York City (NYC) and demonstrate that performance of students from STEM schools does not differ significantly from the performance of students in non-STEM schools. They examined NYC STEM schools’ effectiveness in promoting better performance and closing gender and race gaps in those fields using quantitative administrative data. The audience for this study are parents who are sending their kids to high school, other researchers in the city in the education field, and school administrators. This study is important for me to include in my research because it establishes the importance of creating a STEM track in all high schools and promoting students to go into STEM careers, as opposed to the other articles written by Lace, Newin and Cohen, who focus primarily on humanities.

That would color my education with new knowledge that I may never have received at any other university. The connection that The New School has with historical groups in the city is something that would be extremely beneficial to students. I always learn best by doing hands-on projects, so that would create a constructive and educational environment catered to my needs as a student. Living in NYC and attending The New School would push me out of my comfort zone and allow me to grow as a student and as a person. The New School is truly a one-of-a-kind university that would be extremely beneficial to my education.
