From Sagebrush to Shakespeare: Sharing Culture

Help me give my students the ability to see the world and share their culture with visiting students from Germany by attending a play with them in our area.

My Students

My students are German-language students who have the opportunity to learn German for four years in our high school. Our school's poverty rate is 63% and many of my students have never been out of town, much less out of the country! Most of them are hard-working kids who are respectful and eager to learn about a foreign language and culture. They want to get to know the people from that culture, as well, and eventually travel.

In order to bring the world to the classroom, my students and I are participating in a two-week cultural exchange with a high school in Germany.

This means that 15 students from Germany and their teacher will arrive in our town in April. We will interact with them by housing them, working on a presentations together at school, and taking them on three field trips in our area. Then we will go to Germany in June to visit those same partners and experience their culture.

My students have saved money, done fundraising such as selling 50/50 raffle tickets, worked concession stands, and collected pop cans for refunds. These kids are very motivated to earn the money, but we need your help.

My Project

In April, my students and I will host a group of German students and their teacher from Hipoltstein, Germany. They will stay with us for two weeks, attending school, going on field trips, and giving presentations to us about their culture. One of the field trips that we will go on will be to Ashland, Oregon in order to attend the Shakespeare Festival.

Not only will my students be able to see a famous play for themselves, but they will also be able to share a part of our region's culture with the visiting German students.

We appreciate any funding help from you.
