Case Study 1:
Judy P (EAL)
Judy, a recent EAL intermediate-level arrival, found her voice by embracing her role as the humanities class, town hall facilitator for the campus radio station and later became president of the HS Chapter of Futures Public Radio. She has since interviewed Brooklyn musicians Overcoats and continues to work on campus stories centered on issues such as transitions from MS to HS, as well as stories on the wellness components of the school cafeteria.
Case Study 2:
Evan L (Learning Support)
Evan was a student with identified challenges with oral and written expression. He would often times spend a considerable amount of time searching for words which left him unable to respond to questions or to participate in class discussions. Although he was a great kid, his academic self concept was low because he was quiet and afraid to speak out in front of others. Evan’s experience with FPR helped to strengthen his processing, develop his word finding skills, developing his spoken confidence, improved his turn around and response time and allowed to shift from being a behind the scenes leader to speaker and leader in Futures Public Radio. These skills transferred over into his academic content classes, and even MAP scores, and now he is a confident, integral member of our classes both academically and socially.
