Dual Language Educator Susan Moreno Wins TX Milken AwardJ.L. Long Middle School | Dallas, TX | Nov 14, 2019
In Susan Moreno's dual language classroom, seventh and eighth graders visit Hispanic countries through music, poetry and cuisine without ever leaving Texas. Students build model houses, describing in Spanish each room, what people do in each space, and which room is their favorite. Working in teams, students write short stories, perform original skits and produce videos. Susan’s lessons touch on global issues like immigration from Central America—a relevant topic for many students whose families came to the U.S. along the same path.
