“This grant will expand Nicole Da SIlva's SEL classroom curriculum to involve students' families in a more substantial and meaningful way. Through family interviews and partnerships with local immigrant organizations, students will research culturally-responsive SEL practices from their cultures and countries of origin. The project will also feature two creative writing events for students and their families: 1) A write-in in the fall where students will lead writing workshops in their native languages for family members and 2) the publication and celebration of writing by students and families in the spring.”
