On FOCUS: Photographs and Writings by Students.
Strohmeyer, Beatriz; McGrail, Loren
Project FOCUS is aimed at enhancing literacy education for non-native speakers of English through the use of photography. It was offered as an elective course within a family literacy program for Hispanic adults. This collection of writings and photographs originated in the program. The collection begins with an overview of Project FOCUS, personal notes on some of the participants, and information about the varied activities of the class. Subsequent sections contain student poetry, narratives, essays, and photographs. The writings are in either English or Spanish. Section topics include the following: "Quien soy yo?/Who Am I?" language experience stories; "La ninez y la familia/Childhood and Family"; "Mothers Are Teachers"; "Soltando las riendas/Letting Go"; "The Neighborhood/El vecindario"; and "In My Opinion."
