Writing and Social Engagement: Language, Identity, Collaboration

In Writing and Social Engagement: Language, Identity, Collaboration, you will be working and collaborating with Chicago Public high school (CPS) students who have self-identified as Immigrant and/or Refugee. Throughout the summer quarter, we will examine the experiences and education of diverse immigrant communities in the U.S. as well as examine what it means to be an English Learner (English Emergent). We will work directly with students on literacy skills, and we will be collaborating with CPS high school students on writing our stories. Our work and collaboration will happen on site at their CPS high school.
