Review for Citizen Schools, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Together with two friends, I taught US government, campaigns and elections last fall at Elmhurst Community Prep in Oakland. The Teaching Fellow assigned to us helped prepare a semester-long scope and sequence for our class, and helped manage our group of great middle school kids. As a first-time teacher, this was a great help. The students were very engaged and excited, and we culminated the semester with a mock election for Congress. I've always wanted to teach and this was a great way to do it!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing firsthand how students can become excited about school and learning when adults share their experience and life's work in a middle school classroom.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

recruit even more volunteers to serve as "Citizen Teachers"
