New City School Collaboration with Moline Elementary, YourWords STL and Who Raised You Podcast

Earlier this year, New City School students joined Moline Elementary in sharing their stories with YourWords STL and Who Raised You Podcast for a collaborative poetry and podcasting project about their ideas of what makes a perfect place. 

Students from both New City School and Moline Elementary participated in three separate poetry workshops at their respective schools over the winter months. Groups were tasked with creating a brief recording of their work during the session. The recordings were shared back and forth between the two schools before both groups had the opportunity to come together in March for a collaborative event. During this event, the students worked together to create podcasts about what they felt would be “a perfect place,” and also created a companion mural illustrating their ideas. The day was capped with the students getting to know one another over lunch and recess time back at New City.

The Who Raised You Podcast episode featuring this collaboration (Seas. 2 Ep. 6, "Crossing Delmar") is now available everywhere you get your podcasts; you can also listen online here.
