The Family Tree: Nurturing Language Growth through "All the Parts of Me."
Voices from the Middle, v6 n1 p17-25 Sep 1998
Describes a month-long project in an eighth-grade English classroom in which students (from many countries, many of them immigrants) read an array of bicultural literature, and each researched, wrote, and compiled a many-faceted Family Tree notebook. Shows how students can achieve both their own cultural authenticity and English language competence without loss of personal voice. (SR)
