TOC II Spotlight: Manhattan College

We featured this TOC II spotlight in our March 2018 newsletter

The Manhattan College TOC II program represents a partnership between the college and high-need Focus Districts in New York City and Yonkers. Field and clinical experiences and internships in partner schools are i ntegral to the project because they promote the application of content knowledge to the classroom setting.

Manhattan College TOC II students engage in hands-on experiences that reflect current research on teaching and learning, such as STEM concentrations at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. One example is the Family Math Night, which was facilitated in partnership with the Bronx Field Support Center and Algebra for All. TOC II students worked closely with parents and students as they investigated how everyday scenarios around the school could be "algebra-fied" and then played games that reinforced abstract math thinking.
