Implementing multicultural literature into our lessons promotes a classroom environment of acceptance and leads to increased self-esteem for our English language learners. Multicultural literature may be integrated into guided reading groups and is an excellent way of students connecting with the text and building interest level. Students will experience success and growth in literacy as they are invested in the literature and understand the culture behind the content.

The Soaring like an Eagle grant will allow 60 of our ELL students and 60 of our Native Speaker Spanish students to visit several college campuses in the area during the 2017-2018 school year. The intended outcome of this grant is that our students will know what resources are available to them and have the knowledge to make an informed decision about post-secondary education.
