Last Thursday, students in our AP Core program — an interdisciplinary program of AP US History and AP English Language — departed for a two-day trip exploring some of the regional history and culture.
From Wheatley, students headed to Newport, Rhode Island, for a Gilded Age Mansion Tour, during which they toured The Breakers and The Elms. After the day in Newport, they headed to Mystic, CT in order to prepare for the next day’s adventures.
On Friday, students spent the day at the Mashantucket Pequot Indian Museum and Research Center. Students enjoyed a museum tour and social justice workshop. Finally, students ended the day with some time in Mystic Village before heading back to Wheatley late Friday evening.
A huge “Thank You” to our AP Core teachers, Jennifer Fatone and Dr. John Staudt, for organizing the learning opportunity and accompanying the students. Thank you as well to the additional faculty who served as chaperones on the trip: Jennifer Stein and Thomas Storck.
Finally, thanks to Nicole Hetzel (Class of 2018) for these terrific photos!
