“Boston International High School is a unique magnet school that serves recent immigrants from more than 40 different countries. Nicole Da Silva will teach SEL competencies through an innovative creative writing curriculum in her ESL classes. Throughout the school year, local authors will lead roundtable discussions on their writing through the lens of SEL competencies. Students will also build connections to the Boston writing community through field trips to writing events such as the Boston Teen Author Festival. The project will culminate in a class literary magazine with writing and artwork that will bring the student community together.”
