Welcome to the Newcomers' Center! Our students are from all over the world...Korea, Samoa, Dominican Republic, China, Vietnam, Mexico, Brazil, Sierra Leone, the Philippines, and many other places around the world. They are all monolingual students who are learning how to speak English. We utilize SIOP and Kagan cooperative learning strategies. The students study grammar, reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. The students are also learning about the history of the United States. They are also learning how to adapt to living in this new and mysterious country. They are learning how to communicate in English while also learning about the wonderful diversity in the United States. This is a challenging and exciting class!

If you have any questions, please contact me at 742-1296 from 1:30-2:30 PM. Thank you.......Bonnie L. Palach
