ESL Students Writing in the Real World

Submitted by david.thacker on Fri, 04/16/2021 - 07:51

In Term 3 ESL students from SFJHS wrote food reviews after eating lunch at a local restaurant. Students studied several examples online and analyzed all the characteristics that make a food review readable and helpful for other patrons. To see our students’ food reviews, visit Los Dos Potrillos’ website. They were honest, complimentary, and descriptive in their assessments of both the food and the service they received!

Nebo is partnering with Tabitha’s Way for a new event called Read & Feed.

The purpose of this event is to encourage children to continue to read during the summer and to educate families facing food insecurity regarding food resources available to them and their children while they are not attending school. Our goal is to gather 10,000 gently used books that children can take home with them and keep to read during the summer.
