Change: The Power of Language

How do language, culture, and community influence our identity (who we are and how we think)?

What is the relationship between language, identity, and power?

How can we use language to create change fro ourselves, our families, and our communities?

This year, students’ goals are to read critically, write consciously, speak clearly, listen carefully, and tell their truth. Throughout the school year, we will be exploring the power of language to create change for ourselves, our families, and our communities. In units 1 and 2, students will be reading The Only Road/El único destino, by Alexandra Diaz. Students will be discovering the hidden power of storytelling, and how writers use language to bring awareness to real life challenges people face around the world.
