As California’s—and the nation’s—population becomes more diverse, it’s vital that teaching materials reflect and honor that diversity. In San Francisco, where more than?112 languages are spoken, at least a quarter of students speak English as a second language. In Oakland, almost half of students speak a language other than English at home.
Poetry Inside Out empowers students by drawing on the cultural and linguistic experiences they bring with them to school every day. By translating poems collaboratively, students build a natural appreciation for one another’s skills and backgrounds—and student translations reveal profound responses to language, society, and personal experiences.
