This page outlines the different elements of the "Your Story" portion of the HOPE Summer Program. Please see the descriptions and links to resources below:
Students will pair up with a partner and ask questions. Students will record the answers of the first partner. Then, students will pair up again and repeat this process. Encourage students to use as much English as possible, but definitely let students know they can use their primary language. Teachers and Peer Tutors can circulate throughout the room to help students.
Afterward, students will be called on to introduce their partner. For example, Lydia may be called on to introduce one of her partners. She will read the responses for her partner that she recorded on her Google Presentation.
