Making a Difference in the Community: Students in the English as a Second Language (ESL) Program at ABC Adult School host International Day, a festival to present the culture, food, art, and traditional costumes of students’ native countries. The event begins with a flag parade, followed by student-run exhibits to highlight different aspects of their cultures. Past exhibits included a Korean drum performance, Thai fruit and vegetable carving display, and a Mariachi band. ABC Adult School incorporates EL Civics lessons into the planning and execution of International Day. This project makes a difference in the community by increasing cultural awareness, and highlighting the diversity of ABC Adult School.
