HACC Fall 2017 Reading

Earlier this fall, the writing workshop in Howard Area Community Center’s ESL 5 class held a reading, inviting students from other ESL classes and Howard Area teachers and staff to hear what they had written over the past eight weeks.  Writers read from their newly printed magazine Stories from Our Lives, volume 2. Their stories touched on themes as varied as memorable and important meals, everyday routines in new and familiar places, and advice and traditions received from families, friends, and communities.

Videos from the fall reading are below.

The reading was held at the Howard Area Community Center–see their website here for more information about the center. 

HACC Spring 2017 Reading

At the end of the Spring 2017 writing workshop, Howard Area Community Center writers from the Level 5 classroom celebrated by sharing their writing with other ESL students and HACC teachers and staff. They pulled aside tables and set up chairs in the familiar classroom, turning it into a place to share the stories they had published in the spring booklet, Stories from our Lives (HACC writings_spring 2017)  Listeners responded with attentiveness and friendly laughter as the writers read their stories aloud.

Video clips from the spring reading are below.
