“This project will allow English learning students to embrace their heritage and culture all whilst learning English by completing projects focusing on their cultural backgrounds and life experiences. Each is designed to increase student's confidence, build up their communication skills and give them a sense of belonging by providing them with authentic, meaningful learning opportunities. Students will branch out from their secure small circle by participating in a socialization piece which will build new relationships with their newer EL peers, helping them develop a voice as they focus on identity, while building social and emotional learning. Upon completion, this project will showcase their strengths, cultural contributions and potential.”
