A Visit to Nepal

Lindsay Schuessler Enrichment Activity, Events, Student Success

IMG_0785Through the new Engage NY ELA curriculum, Ms. Thiel’s 5th graders at Adams have been studying issues of human rights around the world. Part of their reading included a passage about Nepal called “Teaching Nepalis to Read, Plant, and Vote,” by Lesley Reed.
As an extension of their learning Ms. Thiel invited her father to be a guest speaker because he spent several years living in Nepal teaching English.
