Our Story, Your Story Revisited

Last week our students our students read their Your Story, Our Story submissions at the Tenement Museum. Here are some photos from the event:

Your Story, Our Story features objects that tell personal stories of American immigration and migration.

This national project uncovers the patterns that bind us, no matter where we came from or how long we’ve been here. Explore stories from across the country, upload the story of an object that carries meaning in your family, and join us in telling the story of American immigration and migration.

In collaboration with the Tenement Museum, Class E4 (taught by Allyn Wong) share their stories online.

Last Thursday some of our University Settlement Adult Literacy Program students brought their family along for dinner, reading, hands-on activities, and a book giveaway featuring the beloved Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle. They had the opportunity to engage with their peers in an interactive and entertaining environment to support their continued growth as readers.
