Dining with the Dramat: Spring Awakening
Pathways students joined us for another “Dining with the Dramat” to celebrate the fall production of “Spring Awakening!” Students ate a fabulous dinner with members of the cast and production crew, got a backstage tour, and watched a rehearsal in action. Students who participated in this event received free tickets to see the Dramat’s matinee performance of “Spring Awakening” on Saturday, November 10th.
MOSAIC: From Damascus to Dunkin' How Coffee Changed the World
This hands-on workshop and special guest lecture traced the origins of the humble Arabica coffee bean from the verdant valleys of the Yemen, where it was first popularly brewed, all the way to your favorite neighborhood café. It’s a story of mystics and sultans, spies and empires, traders and social revolution – with surprises around every turn! Pathways scholars learned how coffee as a social beverage literally changed the course of history, leaving with a deeper understanding of how the civilizations and cultures of the Middle East shape our lives today. Special thanks to Abdul-Rehman Malik, our special guest lecturer and Postgraduate Associate at the Yale MacMillan Center Council on Middle East Studies!

East Rock Record Journalism Program
On Wednesday afternoons, students in grades 3 through 8 at East Rock School meet to work on their school newspaper as part of the New Haven Student Journalism Project. The project helps students learn about the craft and power of journalism by producing a real newspaper, which gets distributed to students and families at the school and throughout the city of New Haven. With the support of Yale undergraduate and high school mentors, students investigate and report on some of the most important stories of the day. Reporters have written about gun violence, the economy, school uniform policies, a proposed sugar tax, the use of social media in schools, and cyber crime. For each issue, student reporters hold “press conferences” with prominent New Haven figures, including Mayor Toni Harp and FBI Special Agent in Charge Patricia Ferrick.
