My high school students are all recent immigrants to the United States. As a group, although they come from dozens of countries and speak over a dozen languages, they all have a common mission: to learn English while completing the same high school requirements as native English speakers. To overcome this daunting task, we use a collaborative, project-based, interdisciplinary, and content-rich environment in all classes. All teachers are both content and English teachers. In my photography class, I use a hands-on activities approach to encourage the use of English in all of its forms - reading, writing, listening, and speaking. All this is done in the incredibly fun way of photography. Students get to explore their worlds in another form- visually- and then use those photographs to tell stories, share experiences, critique their work, and grow in visual literacy. My students work to create projects of their own- like college art students- as well as experience NYC on field trips.
