Teachers and staff participated in a two-day urban expedition throughout the city of Rochester. Guided by their students’ parents,they embarked on an exciting journey into the communities and homes of their students. Walking through urban neighborhoods, hitting all the zip code areas in which the largest numbers of their students reside, they immersed themselves in activities with families as they visited their homes throughout the day. During the tour, parents also shared the hidden gems and obstacles within their neighborhoods and introduced teachers to their community resources. Teachers kept an expedition journal which they later shared with their colleagues back at school.
