Graffiti Alley

Our Eurocentres Toronto Upper Intermediate Academic Skills class has been busy! While working on a variety of collocations, auxiliary verbs, noun clauses and continuous reviews of all forms of past tenses, we have been taking our studies to the street — listening, observing and engaging in the history of Toronto neighbourhoods. Our first trip was an educational excursion to the Annex, utilizing Jane Jacob’s audio walk that explained how local residents saved the neighbourhood from the Spadina Expressway in the 1980s. After that, a trek to the City of Toronto Archives allowed students to see and examine the vast expanse of free resources available for anyone interested in doing in-depth research into Toronto neighbourhoods. Our latest sojourn ended with a trek along Graffiti Alley to view examples of contemporary Toronto Street Art.
