We are thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new Brooklyn Connections website:
Our new site is a hub of information where students and educators can learn more about our program and access the wealth of materials we have developed over the past five years.
On the Teacher Page, you will find information about our signature research project program; announcements for upcoming teacher workshops; and downloadable lesson plans, project outlines and more. And for those schools interested in becoming a partner, our new online application makes it easier than ever before to join Brooklyn Connections (Pssst - It's not too early to sign up for 2012-13! Hint, hint!)
Meanwhile, students can visit their own page to link to "library approved" digital resources and to download guidesheets and research advice. Most importantly, our "Ask for Help!" page connects students directly to Brooklyn Connections educators via e-mail!
Our Example Projects page provides a new outlet for sharing and celebrating the work of our students. Be sure to check back this spring as we begin to expand the site to include slideshows of student work from this year's TWENTY partner schools.
We have big plans to expand resources and materials throughout the year - meaning you'll want to come back again and again. If you like what you see, consider joining our mailing list to stay current on upcoming teacher workshops, application deadlines and more. Send your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org to join.
Finally, many thanks go out to two important groups--to the fantastic BPL Web Design team for their work, guidance and patience throughout the process and to our funders, the New York Life Foundation, whose generous support allowed this dream to become a reality.
