Immigration Stories

The local news reporters from the Daily Hampshire Gazette visited our school when our 8th grade students were interviewing our guests-students from UMass - all students who are immigrants - or come from recently immigrated families. We were practicing our qualitative research skills of the interview method in preparation forinterviewing immigrant family members. Tomorrow we are installing thephoto-portraits of our ARMS students alongside the text of their own immigration stories to go on exhibit in our Lobby-Gallery with our most recent collaboration with Family Diversity Projects, Inc and their new show titles "Building Bridges: Portraits of Immigrants and Refugees":
