McKee ESL Students Take in the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Ms. Ruano and Ms. Sievers, our two intrepid English Language Learner instructors, took our students on a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Getting students from Staten Island to go into the city is always an eye opening experience. Getting students who are new to the country, grappling with a new language, English, turns into an invaluable experience.
What is always invigorating is seeing young minds get a chance to visually be awakened to appreciating different forms of art.
Working together, the students were able to note what they appreciated about the different paintings,
as well as which ones particularly resonated with their life experience.
