Global Awareness Through Bilingual Literacy
Denton Creek Elementary - Fall 2015
Daniela Emmerich and Laura Bird

Denton Creek Elementary's Daniela Emmerich and Laura Bird received $1,700 for "Global Awareness Through Bilingual Literacy."  While a goal of Coppell Independent School District's Dual Language program is to grow learners that are bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural, there is extreme value in growing student's global awareness through the use of quality children’s literature about many different cultures and technology.  This grant funded six copies of over 20 different books covering cultural experiences from Eskimos to Chile to small African villages to Australia.  This helps students appreciate the similarities and differences amongst many cultures of the world. The teachers plan to enhance the books using technology, classroom discussions, guest readers (parents and community members) and virtual discussions with peers (blogging).
