Twain High School

Lisa Nunn, PhD

College of Arts and Science

My Introduction to Sociology classes are partnering with Mark Twain High School. Sociology students will join Twain students in Twain classrooms and participate in their everyday learning activities. In some ways USD sociology students will fill the role of academic mentor, assisting Twain students as they accomplish their assignments. In other ways Twain students will fill the role of academic collaborator for USD's students as they learn about the California public education system. In particular, USD students will collaborate with Twain's excellent teen parent program, to build a hands-on relationship with this rare and wonderfully successful educational intervention in the lives of teen parents.
