A Home for Every Culture at J.S. Clark Elementary

JS clark school

At J. S. Clark Elementary in Shreveport, LA, pre-K–6th graders studied the currencies, weather, geography, art, literature, music, food and governments of Mexico, the Philippines and Africa — selected because a majority of the school’s students and staff identified with those cultures.

Activities included a field trip to an international market, Spanish language instruction, multicultural read-alouds, and an International Festival for families featuring student projects, a quiz bowl, and international foods.

J.S. Clark Elementary’s America: A Home for Every Culture project was funded by a 2012-2013 Sharing the Dream Grant.
