Shared Wisdom: A Collection of Proverbs, Sayings and Quotations.
Zmich, JoAnn, Comp.
Based on the idea that there are universal beliefs that unite people from every part of the world, this collection illustrates common sayings, stories, proverbs, and quotations from students in English-as-a-Second-Language classrooms. During the classes, students talk about their families, countries, and customs, including traditional foods and recipes. The collection presented in this document evolved from a class project in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Students came from Taiwan, Haiti, Iran, Mexico, Morocco, Puerto Rico, Spain, and Vietnam. The sayings are presented in each native language. Contains 14 references. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education) (LB)
