Student Heritage

Found in: building trust and community; bulletin boards

My students speak a variety of languages and come from many different countries and backgrounds. To help them appreciate each other, I have them fill out a form which includes their names in English and their native language, a few phrases in their native language and some personal information such as their likes and dislikes and how many siblings they have. I put the cards on the bulletin board outside my room with a photo and a string leading to where they're from on the world map. This gives the parents something to look at while they're waiting for conferences and it helps them get to know their child's classmates' backgrounds as well as being proud of their own heritage.
