KIPP NYC teacher creates COVID curriculum

KIPP NYCA Zoom class is sharing information about COVID-19 and vaccines for Bronx students at KIPP NYC College Prep High School. Science teacher Michael Becker developed a curriculum for his environmental science class to learn more about the vaccine and the coronavirus itself.

“I want to provide them with access to finding information so that they can make the best choices for themselves and for their families,” said Becker.

Becker is informing students about antigens and antibodies and which communities have been hit hardest during the pandemic. The class also examines historical vaccine cases, how they work and how they are developed.
