Salk Students Explore a World of Cultures

March 06, 2018

Salk Students Explore a World of Cultures - image001Jonas E. Salk Middle School students celebrated International Day on Feb. 16 by participating in a scavenger hunt on different countries in the school's library. Under the guidance of teachers Marie Capizzano and Linora Ortega, English as a New Language students set up booths about their country of origin and spoke with their peers throughout the day about their cultures, experiences and more.

Students in English and foreign language classes stopped by the library and filled out a worksheet while rotating through the different booths. Information on countries such as The Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Ecuador, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Turkey were provided by ENL students who dressed in special attire from their countries and helped answer questions. They also created boards and PowerPoints about their countries that students could refer to. The collaborative lesson allowed students to work together to learn more about the world around them.

"I think it's a great opportunity for the ENL students who tend to be very quiet and shy to share their culture and their experiences," said Capizzano. "It's also great for the rest of the students to see where their classmates are from and learn a little background information about them. I think it's interesting and fun for all of the students involved."
