Learning English the Cultural Way

Book Description (Annotation)

Mrs. Mitchell's elementary students in her English as a Second Language (ESL) class happily make quilts to show the histories and cultures of America and their native lands. Sewing by hand and machine, they create wonderful creations that are a mixture of fabric, art, photography, and poetry. In their journey through the school year, Mrs. Mitchell teaches the ESL students important facts, dates, and events that they share with each other, their families, and friends. They always have fun and excitement "learning English the cultural way."
