Preparing Students through Writing and Cultural Exchange

See Vicki Moreland’s article (link below) in the Charlotte Observer, which details a grant -funded program called Learning by Design. I was honored to have the opportunity to share the basics of my cross-cultural writing exchange project, the Story Portrait Project with teachers in Charlotte who are administering the program to their 7th graders. The interdisicplenary and multi-objective approach to this project makes it a great companion for the Learning by Design program, highlighted in this article. Stay tuned for a more detailed explanation of the Story Portrait Project, which will be available to schools in March.
