Hero and Project Description: 

Newcomer’s innovative teaching idea, “Travel the World,” focuses on introducing authentic learning experiences by pairing English-speaking students in Spanish classes with Spanish-speaking students in English as a second language (ESL) classes. Through this collaboration, students will choose countries and places of interest to create virtual field trips using technology-enabled expedition goggles. Once the preferred location is chosen, students will research the different cultural and heritage sites throughout the world to present during Hispanic Heritage month. With the Voya grant, Newcomer hopes students will obtain a common language experience and unite to collaborate on a common goal.
