Reflections on the Birth and First Year of Bienvenidos, Nuevos Amigos! A Service-Learning Project in Eldorado, Texas, 1999-2000.
Gonzales, Katrina
This brief paper tells the story of a group of high school students in West Texas who worked together to solve a language problem in their local public schools. They determined that there was a need to have better bilingual resources and services available to new arrivals with limited or no English language speaking ability. The bulk of the paper is a narrative of the efforts of several students to write their ideas into a successful grant proposal, which they then used to make their county a friendlier and more accommodating place for newly arrived, limited English speakers from Mexico. Numerous photocopied photographs appear throughout the text. (KFT)
