Thorpe Gordon kids get lessons in cultural tolerance

Taylor Baker, Editor in chief

In a world that is growing in diversity, it is important to teach children about other cultures. Recently, Ms. Fraga took a group of her advanced ESL kids to Thorpe Gordon to read folktales about their cultures to the children.

“They were actually nice. They were listening and they knew what was going on. I really liked it.” Clari Kawaya read his folktale entitled, “The Crow and the Fox” to a class of third graders.
