About this Grantee

To address issues of tolerance and understanding of other cultures, students in Mrs. Simmons and Ms. Richardson’s classes create a children’s book about the experience of a Mexican student relocating to their rural community. Creative writing students research Mexican history and culture and interview local fourth grade students to understand their perspectives before writing their stories. Students in Spanish classes translate the stories for publication of a bilingual book.
