About this Grantee

Mr. Meersman and Mr. Roybal increase the writing and communication skills of their English language learners through a unit that combines history and technology. Students create storyboards and use video cameras and video editing software to record their own speeches, which are modeled after historic newsmakers. For one of the productions, students recreate Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s fireside chats.
