Members of Common Ground’s staff and faculty work hard and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Core 10 is an integrated curriculum consisting of English, Science, Social Studies, and Integrated Methods, first taught in 2018-19 and now entering its second year. Over the course of this year-long experience, students will dive into four interdisciplinary units: New Haven Stories, Justice, Power, and Community Health. Students will use the city of New Haven as a learning laboratory and take part in numerous off-site field experiences with community partners. Additionally, the Core 10 has a commitment to exposing students to the arts through photography, drama/theater, various visual arts media, and videography. The Core 10 Interdisciplinary Methods Teacher — a full-time, salaried position — plays a critical role in facilitating this exciting educational experience for all of our 10th graders
