Essential Stories in Spanish
This summer, Gabi B. '23, George M. '23, Julia B. '23, Leah W. '22, Macayle C. '23, and Samantha S. '23 have been meeting regularly with Jessie Y. (World Languages) in order to fill a gap: literary resources for Spanish classrooms that represent people of color in a positive light.
The group has been engaging in writing workshop protocols and giving support and feedback. Julia B., illustrator extraordinaire, has created a logo for a collection of short personal stories, which will be accompanied by illustrations and photos.
Through this process, they have been on a journey of self-discovery and hope to become better writers because of it.
