What your materials inspired me to think of is teaching a unit at the begining of the school year on diversity and the many different cultures that make up the United States of America.
Teaching this unit on diversity and different cultures would emphasize that being different is what makes us all special and makes the United States so great. This would help any ESOL students feel more welcome and accepted in the classroom.
In particular I thought that I could have the students all find out one culture that makes up their family´s background and then study that country in terms of finding out a couple facts. This would help students learn more about their cultural background and it would also help educate the class.
I also thought that the classroom could have a big world map and students could connect a picture representing them in Florida to a point in the country their family is from. This would help our class see where all of our families are orginally from.
Maybe even have a dinner with the cultures of the world that students and their families would be invited to, and each student would bring a food from their culture.
