About this Grantee
Mrs. Costello and Mrs. Wells will introduce “Language Acquisition through Arts, Science, and Technology” to improve the academic achievement of English Language Learners. The project will provide activities that promote service learning through youth gardening, science reading card creation, and involvement in the school’s TV broadcasts. Students will use technology to expand vocabulary and develop critical thinking, cooperative learning, and creativity skills. Students will also participate in authentic experiences that will enhance their cognitive skills as they make connections between academic language and real-world experiences.
